Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography and visual culture in Southeastern Europe, and one of the five oldest of its kind in the world.
The Festival seeks to bring together emerging and established artists and photographers from around the world with the aim to reflect the diversity of photography and visual culture today.
Through its expanded programming and the year-round activities, Athens Photo Festival is committed to offering a dynamic platform for exchange of ideas, artistic expression and engagement with photography in all its forms.
Exploring critical issues of our time, the Festival provides a critical context where the impact of the ever-changing visual culture can be raised and discussed. Athens, today, is the city facing the challenges for Europe. This put us in a unique position to collaborate with international artists and organisations.
The 2019 main program will take place from 13 June to 28 July 2019, at the Benaki Museum / Pireos 138. The main exhibition programme will be comprised of a curated selection of over 100 entries, selected through an international open call for submissions.
At the core of the Festival, is an extensive and multi-layered program of events and initiatives, including learning and public programs, talent development initiatives, social practice, and community outreach. In addition to the main venue-based program, the Festival encourages community involvement through satellite exhibitions in various locations in the city.
