Dear photographers, 

We would like to thank the numerous photographers who registered and uploaded their photographs on our website.

Photographers who have not yet uploaded their photographs – please note that registration for the competition will end at midnight, 31 August 2019.
After this date you will not be able to upload photographs and/or edit your photography portfolio.


Nearly 60,000 people visited the 2018 exhibition, a significant increase relative to previous years. The large number of visitors attests to the high status that has accrued to the exhibition, the wide extent of public interest in photojournalism, and its social and cultural importance for Israeli society.

This year the prize awarded to the winners of the Photo of The Year and the Series of The Year will be NIS 10,000 each.

Local Testimony is the only photojournalism museum exhibition that takes place in Israel.
Thanks to you it has gained an excellent reputation over the years.


Wishing you all the best of, and hoping for a successful exhibition,

The 2019 Local Testimony editorial board
