The presentation of Ukrainian photography at the International Photo Wien Festival (curated by Kateryna Radchenko and Igor Manko) marked an important step in the integration of Ukrainian photographic art into the global cultural context. Ukrainian photography is lately becoming more and more visible and is being recognized in many countries of the world, and the works of photographers from Ukraine are included in international collections.
On 21 and 22 March, the works of Ukrainian contemporary photographers were presented at the Foto Wien Festival Centre as an international portfolio review. The works were evaluated by 12 experts from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, USA, Finland, Slovakia, Switzerland and Ukraine.

On March 23, two public lectures were held at the Vienna FOTOGALERIE WIEN: a presentation of Ukrainian young photography and the Kharkiv School of Photography "Focus on Ukraine".

The four days in Vienna helped solidify and establish professional ties between the two countries.
