Dear Photo Lovers.
Applications for Istanbul Photo Contest 2012 contest have ended.
Our jury and organizational work continue. At the end of December, we will publish the results of the contest on our website.
Summary of 2011 Exhibition 28 - 11 - 2012
During the IPC 2011 exhibition in Istanbul Taksim Metro we received close to 10 000 visitors. Next year there will be municipal elections in Turkey. Once again, we would like to obtain permission to exhibit IPC İstanbul Photo Contest 2012 in the Taksim Metro. Due to bureaucracy we are unable to announce the exact week of the exhibition. Last year, we waited a full year for the Taksim Metro. The energy from the thousands of users of metro proved very positive for us and our visitors and we want to be there again.
This year Ipc-Istanbul Photo Contest received many requests for new photo projects and with this encouragement. There are participations with many on going projects. They new projects are continuously increasing even we have kept a small scale advertising for the IPC 2012 contest.
All these works and projects are volunteerly support and with the support of our participating volunteers, each day our work grows and flourishes. If you have a photo project on Istanbul or about the city you live in please write us.
Send your email to Nurdogan Senguler email@example.com
