The 18th International Altın Safran Documentary Film Festival organized mainly in the area of documentary and photography. France-based festival photo contest FIAP (International Federation of Photographic Art) and TFSF (Turkey Photographic Arts Federation) are realized as approved. We have been given 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Safranbolu Special Prize by our municipality and our festival committee and the mentioned photographs have been shared in local newspapers dated 26.09.2017 and also from our municipality, festival site and social accounts. All photographs, including the ones worthy of awards, are evaluated by nickname and number, and the name of the owner of the works and the country of the town are unknown from the ethical point of view.
This year, 2392 photographs were taken and the secretariat was awarded 4 works by the festival committee, and the FIAP Honorable Mention was not approved by the festival committee and municipality. For this reason, it is not the prize of the photograph to be awarded, even if it is exhibited. It is publicized with respect.
