The pre-history of the Photography Salon is related to an initiative in 2003 by the Civic Association “National Photography Salon” concerning a national forum. Since 2007 it has had an international character and has included the participation of professionals and amateurs from all over the world. The partners of the event are the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP), Photographic Society of America (PSA), Global Photographic Union (GPU) and the Photographic Society – Varna.

 

The participants present their works in six categories: Open /color/ - PSA, Open /monochromic/, Photo Journey /color/monochromic/, Nature /color/monochromic/, Landscape /color/monochromic/, Face and Body – fine art portrait photography /color/monochromic/. The photos that were awarded by the international jury in the first editions are exposed in the City Art Gallery and the Sea Garden.
