Moscow International Foto Awards 2022


MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL FOTO AWARDS’ mission is to recognize, reward and promote talented photographers from around the world and introduce them to the creative community in Russia.

Founded in 2014, MIFA has received hundreds of thousands of entries up to this day from over 90 countries around the globe, providing a platform for both professional and non-professional / student photographers to showcase their works. Photographers are encouraged to enter images that they are proud of, and the Moscow art scene is a prime location to make the artists’ names well-known, and through exhibitions and media coverage, the Russian art community has received these works with increasing interest and enthusiasm.

Winners are selected by our esteemed jury of photographers, gallery owners and leaders in the photography world, and will receive the MIFA trophy, cash prizes, extensive publicity showcasing their work to a worldwide audience, and more. The MIFA professional jury will each year select 40 photographers’ work for the annual exhibition, promoting over 300 winners’ works.
