The OGLE-IV Transient Search (Wyrzykowski et al. ATEL #4495) reports the discovery of seven on-going supernova candidates, all near their peaks or on the rise, in the magnitude range 17-20.5 in the I-band. All candidates are located next to apparent galaxies and their light curves clearly resemble those of supernovae.
