Dear friends and lovers of photography,

we are pleased to announce that the annual Competition in contemporary photography, in seven official categories, has just opened. All applicants can send in their work by January 31, 2017.

The eleventh edition of RovinjPhotodays is open to all international photographers under the name:

International Competition of Contemporary Photography –
11th Rovinj Photodays, 2018


Photographers can send in their work in one or more official categories according to competition rules and procedures, detailed on

Competition dates for 2018: December 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018

All entries are sent to the organizers who then forward them to the relevant national selectors. The national selectors will choose the best work (maximum 5 images per category) which the organizers will then forward to the Head selector to decide on the winners. This two-part system facilitates a fair selection of three best photographs or series for each category.

Names of the finalists will be announced through the official festival web page and the media. Every year photographers and their selected photographs are being promoted through a traveling exhibition, a catalog, the official festival website, various media announcements and on all festival promotional material.

Winners are officially announced during the Rovinj Photodays closing party (May 4th – May 6th, 2018)

All winners receive the official statuette ‘Kadar’, an invite to Rovinj for the formal awards giving party on May 5th, 2018, at the organizer’s expense, and a participation in the touring exhibition.

All threeΒ  nominated photographers in the ‘Artistic Concept’ category will be introduced separately within the finalists’ exhibition.
