On the occasion of the World’s Day of Theatre 2010 the Theatre Institute opened the zero year of the Theatre Photography Biennale. The aim of the biennale is to present theatre photography as an independent artistic kind, to increase the awareness about it and by presenting photographic works and their artists to create an atmosphere for professional confrontation. The student section of the biennale gives an opportunity for a significant forming of this segment of theatrical documentation for the future. The announcer of the Theatre Photography Biennale is the Bratislava Theatre Institute. The competition is being held in the collaboration with the Photography and New Media Department of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava.
