YPW is a project that gathers young artists from all over the world the sixth year now, and provides them with a unique photography experience. The program includes a competitive and an educational program, and brings together a total of 80 participants (50 competitors, 30 participants of the educational program)
The project promotes photography as a form of art and gives the young photographers an opportunity to further familiarize themselves with it, show what they know, exchange experiences and learn something new. By shooting the natural and cultural heritage we promote the cultural identity of the hosting destination, and through photo advertising the youth is getting prepared for their future professional career.
An integral part of the program along with photography are numerous photo exhibitions, followed by an evening music and film program, and as part of the educational program are lectures, tranings, discussions, and workshops. The main and last part of the event which lasts for five days, where photographers compete for the title, a part of the project are also photo exhibitons around Croatia. Each year, travelling outdoor photo exhibitions visit several Croatian cities, and they showcase the best works of participants from previous years, thus the beauties of Pula, Zadar, Veli Losinj, Kutina and Karlovac are shown all around the country.
