Worldclass Uppsala supports us again

We would like to thank the network Worldclass Uppsala for supporting us again this year. World Class Uppsala is a unique collaboration between companies, municipalities and organizations that together support, develop and market the city’s best events in sports, culture and science.
 

Uppsala Photofestival + Uppland Museum = TRUE

This year we will collaborate with the Uppland Museum. We are very happy about it! Here you will find several exhibitions and lectures. Outside, in the yard, the Board will be there and where we will open the festival. Thanks to Maria Ljunggren, Communications Manager, for all inspirational conversations and for the final agreement.
 

New application rule for
returning photographers

To make sure that the festival has a diversified exhibition programme each year, the board has determined to only let returning photographers exhibit three festivals in a row. The photographer is allowed to apply to the festival’s individual exhibition programme a forth year, but only as a part of a group of at least four persons.
 

Information about the exhibitors

We will start presenting our exhibitors here shortly. The selection is done, but it is a process to get all the presentation texts, and more. But soon we will publish more information. If you want ongoing information, please follow us on Facebook, where we’ll post more information on a regular basis.
 
Ulf Rehnholm, a photo artist with a different perspective, and a never ending flow of creativity. He will exhibit his work 1Key,which consists of 177 refugee portraits, which have fled to Sweden the past couple of years. In media these people are often portrayed as an anonymous group, not of individuals. Ulf Rehnholm wants the viewer to get engaged and curious.
 
This piece of art was selected as one of few in this year’s spring exhibition at Liljevalchs in Stockholm, and has received a lot of attention in media.
