'Organ Vida was a wonderful surprise as a local festival on photography that was so well organized and with a very high quality of work exhibited. As a part of expert meetings, it held wonderful panel discussions among professionals from all over the world on currents issues in the field of documentary photography. Also, one could enjoy many artist talks that gave a variety of important information for everyone present. The fact that the organization was able to get so many high standard experts to Zagreb turned the festival into a very intense meeting, which is very important to us all, but above all to the local community. Last but not least, all efforts made to network the professionals in the cultural field of Croatia gave us, as invites, a very good impression of the fantastic work done in the country. I want to thank the organization for the wonderful hospitality that we received during our visit.'

‘It's an honour and a privilege to be asked to do this and be here, in this beautiful city, and see such phenomenal work. The quality of the work at this exhibition is very high, which meant the judging process was very difficult, but really rewarding, I'm very rich. And to work with the organization and the people behind it, who are all very young and energetic, is an inspiration. They have an energy and a vitality and an urgency to them that I very rarely come across, so that must be inherent in Croatia.’

Talks every day, film screenings, brilliant exhibitions in very intriguing buildings.’
