Traditionally this year, the exhibition will feature professional works in various genres of photographers from different countries.

This time, the training program focuses on the full cycle of “from the customer to the finished works,” but each of the speakers will also reveal artistic aspects in their field to the maximum possible extent. It will not do without a legal seminar, which has already become traditional.
