International World Photography Awards is photography and film festival with IMDb Qualifing Festival (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0031386/2021/1) with live screenings and exhibition in New York, USA.

The project was also supported and publicized by local television stations and the festival has gained increasing attention.

If you are a filmmaker, photographer and are aiming to get a reward for your skills and hard work, this is the best place to watch out for in order to get a chance of winning an international photography award.

Since photography also combines film and music video, we decided to prepare a screening of some selected films for visitors. If you’re serious about improving your skills and building your photo brand and reputation as a photographer, joining our contest is the best thing to do to collect experiences and learning!

The first year of the festival took place in the Slovak East Museum gallery. For increased attention abroad, we decided to move the festival to NY. The venue for the second year of the IWPA will be announced soon!
