Belfast Photo Festival 2024

Belfast Photo Festival is calling for submissions for 2024. Individuals and collectives are welcome to apply.

Belfast Photo Festival is a not-for-profit organization that presents one of the leading International Festivals of photography in the United Kingdom and the Visual Arts Festival of Northern Ireland.

The Festival provides the perfect platform for gaining exposure to an international audience, with previous editions having welcomed over 150,000 visitors from all over the world.

Belfast Photo Festival is offering artists/photographers the opportunity to exhibit their work in the main Festival gallery alongside some of the biggest names in the field of photography and have their work taken on tour to be exhibited at the 2025 Photo Schwiez (Zurich, Switzerland), with a number also having the opportunity to be featured in the arts magazines Abridged and Aesthetica.

The winners will be eligible for a number of awards, including a cash prize of £2,000.

The theme has been left open to remove any restrictions. Submissions must be photographic or lens-based but can include incorporations of other art forms with the photographic medium (i.e. performance, painting, sculpture, music, literature etc).

You can submit both a photo-book and photographs of the same project, but a fee will need to be paid for both. If submitting only a photo-book and not photographs, it will be your photo-book that will be selected for presentation and not photographic prints for exhibition.

Please visit the official website for further information.
