About the contest

SLOVAK PRESS PHOTO is a contest followed by a photographic exhibition which provides an independent and authentic visual testimony of the life, as perceived by photographers from Slovakia and Eastern Europe. The contest and the exhibition are intended to give the public the opportunity to witness the events and phenomena which occurred in the previous year.

The contest seeks to elevate the level of Slovak visual journalism, in its quality of an important communication media and visual art, to support, promote and motivate journalists in Slovakia, to create the opportunity to confront the works by Slovak artists and artists from the neighbouring countries, and to help to make the work by young photographers and students visible.
