While the workshop still remains and has become the central part of the festival, it is now accompanied by a programme that also features a number of photography exhibitions, movie screenings and round table discussions. The 2015 exhibitions featured the photographers Donald Weber,, , and also a presentation of anonymous, lost and found photo images. The topics of discussions touched upon the questions of documentary photography, the analogue/digital divide, the production of photobooks and so on.
The festival takes place all over the city, with the workshop being partly focused on the urban landscape of Celje from the start. The venues where the rest of the festival is held are the Plevnik-Kronkowska Gallery, Celje Museum of Recent History, Celje Gallery of Contemporary Art, Celje Youth Centre, the Art kino Metropol Celje, and the Josip Pelikan Photographic Studio.
