Photography Festivals and Contests

October 24, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

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.

You can contact me by facebook, to write a comment to this post, or send an email.
