There will be also a photo lab, or photo competition, winners of which will receive support for their own project for 2019. Their own project, will then be exhibited in the modern art space of Batumi. Mentors for the project are: Koka Ramishvili, Giorgi Nebieridze, Natela Grigalashli (Georgia) and Anna Chistozerdova (Belarus).

26 contestants from 14 different countries, including Georgia, Ukraine, Germany, Israel, South Korea, Thailand and others will participate in this year’s main exhibition. This exhibition will be a conceptual photographic image installation designed to create a new platform for the international art community. The exhibition is dedicated to individuals who have influenced or changed history, and those who will continue to create changes in the future. History teaches us that one word or a small image have the potential to cause great change.

The organizers hope to maintain not only the future cooperation of participants but also aims to inspire projects that can later be transformed into artistic or documentary photo projects which can later be exhibited in the modern art space of Batumi. It also hopes to promote a completely new initiative and sector-related cooperation.
