The small Masurian village of Wojnowo has been changing its face for 3 years for summer and summer months. It becomes a great outdoor photo gallery. All thanks to the Wojnowski Festival of Photography.

Wojnowo is not a place completely unknown on the map of holiday trips. Up to now, one has seen the Orthodox church, the molenna and the Monastery of Starowiers, in which today houses the Museum of Icons. However, everything changed a few years ago, when the KFP SDP decided to organize the exhibition, using fences to display the photographs of the best Polish press photographers.

The initiative turned out to be a hit. Residents of the village willingly shared fences for their suspension, and numerous trips: bus, bicycle, car and individual vacationers visiting Wojnowo gained an additional attraction, which accurately hit their tastes and needs.

When the festival starts

The event will start on June 1 and the route with a length of over 2.5 km will show over 500 large-format photographs of such authors as Chris Niedenthal, Maciek Kosycarz, Jacek Marczewski, Czarek Sokołowski and almost 60 other photographers. This is the main but not the only attraction organized by the organizers. The plans also include the presentation of post-competition exhibitions "Awards SDP 2019" (competition for journalists and photojournalists based on the American Pulitzer prizes) and "Forests in the lenses of foresters" (contest of the quarterly "Echa Leśne").

You can also expect analogue photography workshops and face-to-face meetings with known photographers. Therefore, for photography lovers, a whole range of attractions awaits in Wojnowo, throughout the holiday and summer season, as works will be on display until September.

The sponsor of the event is Canon, which corresponds to m.in. for providing prints of parts of the presented works. They were prepared on the Océ Arizona plotter. Thanks to this, you can be sure that the presented prints are in the best possible quality and will be resistant to all weather conditions – from the harsh sun to heavy rain – which will allow festival visitors to enjoy equally expressive photos throughout the festival.
