The Academy of Photography presents the 8th Edition of the MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY!

Dear Friends,
The new edition of the longest performing and largest of scale festival of photography – THE MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY – is a fact!
The Programme Brochure of the selected events has arrived, time and again, thanks to UniCredit Bulbank – our Official bank. Their support allows us to further develop the festival to a high, widely recognized level. The Programme features 30 photo exhibitions and events among which we are proud to display notable foreign presence. The viewers will be able to get in intimate touch with them, once again due to the support of our logistic, media and financial partners, both traditional and new coming, who have been encouraging the efforts of the National Academy of Photography in the course of years.

All events are under the umbrella of the CONTRASTS theme.

This year, our event was awarded the EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe 2017-2018) label by the European Festivals Association which will make the event even more popular in Bulgaria, Europe and worldwide. The official opening is on June 1st, when, as tradition has it, we will present the Academica statuette to the next author who has deserved it for their contribution to Bulgarian photography.

We wholeheartedly extend our gratitude to you all – artists, professionals, amateurs and photography enthusiasts!
