The mission of FotoAparat is to share their photographic expertise with the readers, helping them to develop and improve their photographic talents. FotoAparat provides all the information photographers need.|

The valuable combined knowledge and expertise of DIWA member publications is harnessed to identify the very best digital imaging products. Continuously, throughout the year, a key technical process developed by DIWA, identifies products, including digital cameras, which merit a DIWA gold, silver or bronze award. Each of these awards is the result of the combined technical evaluation of multiple test reports provided by individual DIWA members.
Through DIWA's unique standardised test report comparison system, unrepresentative product samples and incorrect test data can be easily identified and prevented from adversely affecting the decision to make an award. Through this process, DIWA aims to establish the industry's most up to date, trusted and valued product awards.
The DIWA home page (www.diwa-awards.com) serves as a portal for visitors to easily find reviews produced by member publications in their preferred languages as well as a guide to the products that have earned DIWA awards.
