Founded in 2014, MIFA’s mission is to encourage, recognize, reward, and promote talented photographers who capture priceless moments around Russia.

Ruston Banal, Philippine country representative of International Photography Awards, expressed appreciation for being able to showcase in our country the several glimpses of life from other parts of the globe.

Leading to the launch of the exhibit, back-to-back workshops were held. Hossein Farmani facilitated a lecture entitled “Selling Your Prints,” which tackled the intricate promotion and marketing of one’s own available pictures that are available to the public. 

Farmani is the founder of the sought-after "The Lucie"—the Oscars for photography—one of the most prestigious photography distinctions in the world, which recognizes the best photos of the year, in different fields chosen by a revered jury. 

He is also known for his collection of fine prints from industry experts such as Henri Cartier-bresson, Steve McCurry, Annie Leibovits, James Nachwey, and Richard Avedon, to name a few.

DLS-CSB Photography Program chairperson Francis Tady, meanwhile, spearheaded the "One Shot, One Minute" project, which granted opportunities for photographers to showcase their images coupled with individual 60-second stories.

The event is made possible through the collaboration of the MIFA and the Filipino IPA.
