The category named “Health Defenders” has been established in honor of the medical workers on the front line of the campaign against COVID-19.

An exhibition of photos and posters on the medical workers will be also organized on the sidelines of the festival, which will take place in Tehran from September 21 to 27.

The festival is organized every year to commemorate the anniversary of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.
