A platform for photograpers and photo enthusiasts
In Uppsala there is a widespread interest in photography. We are many practitioners of the art form; professional photographers, amateurs, freelancers, students, and more. The county has several training programs in secondary and college, numerous photo associations, associations which offer courses in photography, as well as galleries and museums showcasing photographic art. It is also something that most people practice some form and have feelings.
Therefore, we started Uppsala Photo Festival, to create a platform for photography in Uppsala, a development opportunity and inspiration, collaboration and visibility for both photographers and photo enthusiasts.
In four years, Uppsala Photo Festival has grown into an international event with an extensive program of four legs; exhibitions, lectures, workshops and competitions. Since 2012, we have a theme each year, which was Movement in 2012, Emotions in 2013, SELF in 2015, and Dreams in 2017.
Next year, 2019, the theme is WOMEN.
To be able to continue operating a festival of great quality and with exciting content, the association’s members voted for the proposal that the festival changed to a biennial event, that takes place every two years.
