Portfolio skatei var pieteikties dalībnieki no visām valstīm, bez vecuma ierobežojuma, līdz 2019. gada 20. martam. Lai piedalītos skatē dalībniekam ir jāsagatavo prezentējams portfolio (1-3 darbu sērijas) drukātā vai elektroniskā formā. Dalības maksa līdz 1. martam ir 70 EUR (studentiem – 40 EUR), pēc 1. marta 80 EUR (studentiem – 50 EUR).

ISSP Applications (update)

The Application form now works in all browsers! In case you encounter a problem, write to us at office@issp.lv.

We have already received first 10 applications from an incredible mixture of 7 countries! :) Looking forward for more!

ISSP Applications open (but for Safaris)

Hey hey! We are pleased to announce that the applications for the International Summer School of Photography 2010 are officially open. The deadline for applications is 10 May 2010. We will accept 60 students in total this year.

One small note! - our newly introduced on-line Application form still refuses to make friends with Safari browser, so problems with uploading photos there. Thus you will be on safer side if you use any other browser than Safari if you want to apply immediately. We are working on this problem, so hopefully everything works everywhere soon!
And of course, we are looking forward to seeing your applications!
And please, spread the news :)

Coming up - ISSP 2010 Applications

The new OnLine Application form will materialize Very Soon (all of our fingers crossed). Meanwhile, the complete information on ISSP 2010 is already here. Take a look and prepare yourselves!
