Accoding to Rahmat, the success of Indonesia team cannot be separated from the role of FPSI (Fededrasi Perkumpulan Senifoto Indonesi/Indonesia Federation of Photographic Art Associations) in curating the photos so strictly that they got 20 selected photos to represent Indonesia. “Under the auspices of FPSI, the Indonesia team raised a theme entitled “Rich Culture of Indonesia”,” Herman added.
