IPTC search is not yet implementated. We need to add new tables in digiKam 
database for that. We will working on this subject in the future. Actually, 
only a working draft is done (not yet complete).

There are some wishes in B.K.O about to improve search feature, based on 
metadata. Comment and vote for it :
