In the Young Photographers competition we will award one winner and 3 merit award winners.

The FEP Awards ceremony where the finalists (from 4th place to 10th place or merit winners of the Young Photographer competition) will receive their certificates and the TOP 3 winners will receive their trophies, will take place Sunday, March 22, at the Salone Margherita Theater, Rome at 8 pm.
