Last year's PhotoArtMedica 2015 Salon showed the international scale of medical society's artwork - the International Federation of Photographic Art FIAP granted their auspices to the International Salon of Artistic Photography for Physicians PhotoArtMedica 2015 as a sign of appreciation to our community for the high level and commitment in developing our passion for photographic art. The laureate of the PhotoArtMedica 2015 Grand Prix is our colleague from Ireland, Paul Byrne, MD. Among other laureates, next to Polish participants, there are participants from Israel, Russia and Sweden.
We hope that this year's edition of PhotoArtMedica 2016 will widen its, both national and international, scale. Again our activity is supported by the Fotoklub and the International Federation of Photographic Art, also we were granted Honorary Patronages of prezes Hamankiewicz and Prezydent. We also have National Geographic Polska, Traveler magazine and medical platform Esculap.com as our media partonages, and our main sponsors, Inter Polska and OLYMPUS providing the prizes.
The main theme of PhotoArtMedica 2016 Salon, next to the free category, is cityscape. Spending most of our time in the city environment, we are getting used to it and we rarely search for inspiration there. But then maybe it is worth to grab a camera, following words of a Polish photographer, Joanna Helander, 'Suddenly I noticed that everything around is fascinating. But it wasn't before I took a photo.'
We await your cityscape inspirations in vast creative interpretation.
Wishing you positive photoemotions,
With best regards,
Krzysztof MUSKALSKI, MD, PhD
