To improve the census of the Local Volume galaxies, we carried out a systematic search for nearby dwarf galaxies in a declination range of based on the ESO/SERC film copies. As a result, we present a list of 81 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates of low surface brightness which have angular diameters . Half of the objects have been found for the first time. This sample may be considered as supplementary to our list of 95 southern nearby dwarf galaxy candidates (A&AS, 1998, 127, 409) which have been detected in the same declination range around the known Local Volume galaxies.
