Dear friends,
let us wish the new year 2023 to be brighter and more prosperous!


This year again, we supported the gesture to young photographers from all over the world (from 16 to 21 years) with free participation in 2 sections of their personal choice.
Last year’s conclusions are that there was interest from young people, and better ones won awards. Another promotion on the occasion of our 10-th anniversary was that every participant who enters in 1 to 5 sections gets 1 more section free!

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!
