Hi everybody. During my visit to the INTERPHOTO Festival 2019 I proposed to several photographers to share info on photography festivals/contests we know.
Here is a list of some festivals, with hyperlinks to most of them (mainly, of those I have visited personally).
Hopefully, the list will be expanded with time with your help. Also, dates of the events and of deadlines will be added as well.
