Dear visitor! Welcome to the new ISSP website!
We hope that you like the new re-designed version as much as we do! We will be perfecting it in the coming week.
More good news: the applications for the International Summer School of Photography 2011 are open! The complete information on ISSP 2011 is now online and we are looking forward to receiving your incoming applications. Deadline - 8th of May 2011!
Now, this is not a 1st April joke, its official: the ISSP international summer school is moving to Kuldīga! Though it all happened a little suddenly, we are happy with the new situation. The new location, Pelči boarding school, is 4 km away from town, so we’ll keep all the intimacy of the campus. Kuldīga is a gem and a runner up UNESCO world heritage site, it will for sure charm everyone.
Besides, we will have a real castle all for ourselves - imagine ! :)
Many, many things in process. By the end of the month, we will be ready to announce the applications for Summer School 2011. You can already find some information about 2011 workshops and teachers here. We will also have a brand - new website, and more exciting news coming up soon!
