For this reason, the organizers gave up the patronage of FIAP and PSA, this being replaced by the patronage of the Ministry of Culture from Romania and the Municipality County Council from Oradea. In this context organizers can benefit from more opportunities, such as judging through the internet (which is prohibited by FIAP and PSA), allowed as to inviting branded photo artists from different locations of the world such as the Cătălin Anastase from Australia, Paul Bock from USA or Materassi Marcello EFIAP / p, ESFIAP from Italy or Georg S.Holzmann EFIAP, Hon EFIAP from Germany, which no longer have to travel at the Photo Club "Water Lily" headquarter.

Another innovation is the substitution of usual FIAP medals and mentions with “Premfoto” crystal trophies and “Premfoto” plaques with a special design, which will be engraved the names of the authors and the title work awarded at this World Salon of. The organizers of the World Salon hope that through the four sections established to provide for the artists photographers and especially for the younger generation to create new opportunities for affirmation in some sections less agreed by the international salons such as photography experiment or street. The World Salon Organizer manager, photo-artist Stefan Tóth AFIAP wish them all artists photographers who have the intention to participate with their work at the eleventh edition of the Salon, success in preparing the work.
