Dear friends,
let us wish the new year 2024 to be brighter and more prosperous!


This year again, we supported the gesture to young photographers from all over the world (from 16 to 25 years) with free participation (on their personal choice of sections) is valid at the stage of acceptance of works. But it’s already for 3 sections! Last year’s conclusions are that there was interest from young people, and better ones won awards. But in order to expand the circle of young people, we added 4 more years to the age range of “young” photographers – until last year the limit was 21, and now it is already 25 years old photographers! Another promotion on the occasion of our 10-th anniversary was that every author participating from 1 section up received 1 section for free. Well, this year we have news – the free sections become 2!

IPS Plovdiv 2023 is again in the cultural calendar of the city of Plovdiv. There will be a luxury album in book body with some of the better photos again thanks to the financial support of the Municipality of Plovdiv. We hope again for the participation of the most active and good photo artists from around the world, and the jury to evaluate, award and choose the most impressive photo works!
