The competition – which has started in a tradition creation way – was organised by the Pannon Fényképészkör Egyesület (photographer association) based on similar foreign and domestic events, for the first time in the spring of 2010. The photographer community made a tradition from FotósViadal in Veszprém, so increase the city’s already diverse and lively cultural programs.
After taking place successfully the first FotósViadal, positive feedback came from photographers and from the media too. In focus of the experience gained in 2010, the competition became a major event in 2011. As a novelty in the autumn of 2014, part of the Nyitott Balaton event series FotósViadal was taking place on the promenade of Balatonfüred. The eight FotósViadal so far is a success story, and we hope that the FotósViadal Budapest, which was held for the first time in Spring 2017, will be an integral part of our capital’s cultural life.
