Athens Photo Festival 2019

Athens Photo Festival, organised by the Hellenic Centre for Photography, is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe. Exploring critical issues relevant to our times, our programme works within an international, national and local context, encompassing a variety of activities designed to reflect the diversity of contemporary photographic practice, and to create opportunities for exchange of dialogue, artistic expression and international engagement.

The 2019 main programme will be comprised of a series of solo and group exhibitions, presenting a wide spectrum of works selected through an international open call for proposals in combination with invited artists. At the core of the festival is a range of events, including portfolio reviews, screenings, talks and discussions, workshops, and various participatory projects and ephemeral projects. In addition to the main venue-based programme, the festival encourages community involvement through satellite exhibitions in various locations in the city.



Entry Deadline: 31 March, 2019

The Festival invites proposals from established or emerging artists, curators, galleries and organisations worldwide, in all areas of contemporary photography. The selected projects will be exhibited in the Αthens Photo Festival 2019.
