International Salon of Photographic Art of Romania
21st edition, Bucharest, 2016
Dear lovers of photographic art,
I am looking forward to meet you at the 21st edition of the International Salon of Photographic Art of Romania (SIAF). Our Salon is ranked as one of the most important photographic events in Romania and has a tradition of more than half of a century. The works of the most important photographer artists all over the world got prizes or have been accepted so far at SIAF.
You have probably noticed that I am not in favour of tempting the participants with countless different prizes. I prefer well poised, normal competition. I am sure that valuable photographer artists are not chasing for medals nor diplomas and are in favour of a sincere contest in order to make their works known and also to meet photographer colleagues.
I assure you that the International Salon of Photographic Art of Romania is an honest competition and the jury will not put quality aside in favour of quantity. The SIAF jury will make a fair selection of photographs and the prizes will be awarded to the most valuable ones.
I wish you all lots of success !
