voditelj: Tomislav Dolenec
Nakon što je tijekom gotovo punih mjesec dana natječaja ˝POKRET˝ pristiglo više od 660 fotografija odnosno preko 250 zasebnih prijava autora, žiri je odabrao najbolje fotografije. Za postav na festivalu fotografije odabrano je ukupno 45 fotografija kojima se predstavlja čak 32 autora, kako serijom od dvije i tri fotografije tako i pojedinačnom. Ovom izložbom fotografija i njezinim odabirom htjela se prikazati raznolikost pristupa ovoj složenoj tematici pri čemu se podrazumjevaju različiti senzibiliteti i osobnosti koju nose fotografije kao i njihova različita estetska, semantička i konceptualna poimanja. Uz hrvatske autore, predstaviti ćemo i nekoliko stranih autora.

'Organ Vida' is an international photography festival held annually in Zagreb. The festival is currently in its 5th year of running.
The objective of this festival is to promote the contemporary Croatian and foreign trends in photography, to strengthen the photography scene in Croatia, and to present quality works to a wide audience. Through its continuous development, this festival aims to become the leading international photography festival (especially open to the young photographers) in the region.
The festival programme comprises of various types of events - lectures, creative workshops, presentations of different photographers and their projects, exhibitions, and music gigs.
Each edition of the festival is centered around a specific theme within the field of documentary photography. The works for the exhibition need to be submitted via our online application form. This year, the jury will select 10 of the best documentary projects to be displayed at a large group exhibition during the festival. After the closing, the exhibition will tour several cities in Croatia and abroad.
Along with the exhibition and workshops, what we offer at our festival is also the opportunity to have fun, meet new creative friends (photographers as well as other artists), exchange advice and experiences, and expand your professional network. It is our belief that these types of live events significantly contribute to the development and strengthening of the photographic scene, because the photographers are given a chance to show their work to a wide audience, explain and discuss them, and receive comments and feedback right away.
We are happy to invite you to visit our next festival and become a part of our Organ Vida community! And in case you see yourself as a potential sponsor or supporter of the festival, please contact us with your ideas for co-operation.
