Formed in March of 2014, the photo club Kumanovo from Macedonia has about thirty members and counts as one of the biggest clubs in the Republic of Macedonia. Even though it’s a young club, its core consists of world-known art photographers who have achieved great success in the short period of the club’s existence. Besides exhibiting activities and successes, the club became locally well-known for its free photography lessons and its work with children. It has hosted many solo exhibitions of authors worldwide and successfully collaborated on group projects with befriended clubs from Serbia, Bosnia, Canada, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, etc. The club is a proud member of FIAP, PSA, and IAAP. In November of 2014, the club organized the first festival of photographic arts in Macedonia, entitled the Malinski Photo Festival, at which more than fifteen solo and group photographic exhibitions were opened. The Malinski Photo Festival later became an annual and prestigious photographic event that sets a true example of photography as a respected art form, raising the bar.
