We are here again to present you EUROPA 2018, the 17th International Biennial of Photography.
We are pleased to announce that the International Federation of Photographic Art has given us the FIAP Silver Plaque in recognition of the organisation of the ten salons under their sponsorship. This award encourages us to go ahead with our project, which was born in 1973 and updated in 2012 entering a new stage until the present day.
However, EUROPA Salons would not be anything without you, the artists who send us your pieces of work year after year to take part in our Salon. Now and ever, your photographs open us up a window to the world from your personal point of view.
For many years, we have seen the world through your eyes and creativity, so we just want to thank your trust for such a long time. On this occasion, we have received 3624 pieces of work from 293 artists from 50 different countries from around the world.
From Catalonia, our small Mediterranean country, it is an honour for us that your works place us in the map of this global and changing world, which also considers the different identities of its people.
We encourage you to meet again next year on a new edition of EUROPA Salons,
Josep M. Casanoves Dolcet, AFIAP, EsFIAP
Chairman of Europa Salons
