Athens Photo Festival

Submissions Deadline: May 14

The annual Athens Photo Festival, comprising a rich program of exhibitions, learning programs, screening nights, open talks and more, is now accepting submissions from artists and photographers for its 2020 installation.

The Festival will feature the work of emerging and established artists from all over the world, with the aim of reflecting the diversity of photography and visual culture today, and to explore diverse cultural, artistic, social and political perspectives.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the deadline for submissions has been extended to Thursday, May 14, and the festival, which usually takes place in June, has been pushed up to July-August.

The main exhibition, featuring works selected from the submissions, will be on display at the Benaki Museum Pireos Street Annexe (Pireos 138), and will feature a wide range of image-based genres, ranging from fine art and conceptual pieces to documentary and photojournalism, installations, and interactive and multimedia works. You can see some of the impressive works presented at the festival’s main exhibition in previous years here and here.

Stay updated on any possible changes to the program due to Covid-19, and submit your work through the festival’s website, here.
