We inspected a sky region with declination range of [ 0°, -18°] based on the SERC EJ plate copies. As a result a list of 50 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates with angular diameters is presented. Most of the galaxies have low and very low surface brightness. More than 60% of the objects are detected for the first time.
Key words: dwarf galaxies
