Photo Romania Festival grants scholarships to 10 young photographers

Posted on April 17, 2015 by UNITED PHOTO PRESS MAGAZINE

Ten young photographers will be the beneficiaries of Photo Romania Festival 2015 Grants. The winners will take part, free of charge, in any workshop they wish and in most events of the festival. Photo Romania Festival 2015 will take place between the 15th and the 24th of May in Cluj-Napoca.

The grants adress young people (maximum 25 year olds), who don't have significant photography background and skills, but who wish to evolve artistically and have genuine potential to become good photographers. The contest is open to participants from Romania, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, (the Republic of) Moldova, and Ukraine.

Photo Romania Festival organisers will cover the costs of accommodation (bed and food included) during the 10 days of the event.

Photo Romania Grants support the geographical mobility of young photographers. Through these grants, Photo Romania Festival organisers wish to contribute to the development of technical skills and the artistic side of young photographers. Also, by being international, the contest has a supplementary objective: to facilitate the intercultural dialogue in the photography field.
