Artists connected with curators, the audience with artists, the beginning photographers with veteran professional colleagues and art lovers. The themes and the profile of talks were dictated by the festival's program of 45 exhibitions, night slides of the finalists' works and Asian photography,photography workshops, meetings, discussions on travel photography, photography, auction, photowalks and a Portfolio Review with over 30 reviewers from all over the world, one of the most important in Europe.

Two new programs were particularly successful, the Discovery Showexhibition of Mario Macilau from Mozambique and the HIT THE ROAD discussion panel. Photographers Travel presenting different approaches to the 'Hit the Road' theme. Well-known photographers: Simon Norfolk (UK), Carl De Keyzer (BE) and Christopher Rauschenberg (US) presented their works and talked to reviewers, curators and the experts in photography. That panel was a kind of trailer for the next edition of Fotofestiwal which will be devoted to travel photography. An exhibition by Robert Rauschenberg's exhibition – curated by Alison Nordström, the artistic director of Fotofestiwal 2016 and several other exhibitions will prove how unexpected that theme may be.
