Athens Photo Festival 2024 (APhF:24) is now accepting submissions from artists and photographers for its exhibition program.
Embracing a variety of cultural, artistic, social, and political perspectives, the Festival invites projects from the entire spectrum of the photographic medium, ranging from fine art, conceptual, documentary photography, and photojournalism to other media, including video, performance, and installation. In this way, the organizers seek to stimulate a critical dialogue that embraces a variety of expressive means, thematic areas, and approaches – from a traditional photography background to the most contemporary practices.
Athens Photo Festival will feature the work of over 100 artists from all over the world. The selected works will be exhibited at the Benaki Museum / Pireos 138, one of the most prestigious museums in Greece. The main program will occupy all the exhibition spaces of the Museum, covering over 3,000 square meters.
The exhibition program is committed to a broad definition of photography, encompassing all the different forms that the photographic image can take, combining both traditional and digital techniques such as print, projection, photobook, texts, objects, and more. Athens Photo Festival promotes various curatorial approaches, producing high-quality exhibitions while respecting art, artists, and the ideas they represent.
With a history of over 35 years, APhF, maintained and enhanced its standings as the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe, and reinforced its commitment to improve Athens reputation for being a premier photo destination for interstate and international visitors.
The mission of the Athens Photo Festival is to provide a platform for artists and photographers to make new connections and reach the widest possible audience for their work. Last year’s international open call attracted submissions from all over the world, with more than 90% of the submissions coming from outside of Greece.
