Description

One of Northern Ireland's leading visual arts festivals, showcasing the finest national and international contemporary photography

 


The importance of photography in Northern Ireland's visual culture and history is something the festival aims to promote while also embracing and showcasing the nations' current and upcoming photographic talent both at home and abroad through seeking out new and emerging talent.

Northern Ireland has produced and continues to produce many award winning and internationally renowned contemporary photographers. This festival is a major event, which highlights and presents the highest standards of work from some of these practitioners alongside the leading talents from across Europe and the world.

Through a range of national and international interactive events the festival aims to inspire the country's future photographers, artists and entrepreneurs, offering new, exciting, welcoming and sometimes challenging experiences to audiences through the programme of events. Through these events the festival helps to foster and develop wide ranging critical debate, analysis and documentation of photographic arts practice in Northern Ireland and abroad.
