Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe and a premier cultural event in Athens. The main programme will take place throughout June and July 2016, at the Benaki Museum, one of the oldest and most prestigious museums in Greece.

The mission of the Athens Photo Festival is to provide a platform for artists/photographers to make new connections and reach the widest possible audience for their work. Last year’s international open call attracted submissions from over 80 countries, with more than 80% of the submissions coming from outside of Greece. The final selection included 97 artists from 39 countries.

Athens Photo Festival is one of the most visited photography events in Europe. The evolution of the audience over the past editions proved a success, attracting over 52.000 visitors. Over the past few years, the Festival has expanded steadily, with more international guests from more different countries attending each year. Among the guests are directors, artists, curators, and art professionals from all over the world. In addition, the festival’s website has become (according to Alexa Traffic Rank) the third most visited site from all the photo festival’s sites of the world.

Athens Photo Festival is a member of the European Month of Photography (EMoP), a network comprised of photography festivals in 8 European capitals that aims to foster collaboration on joint projects within a European context.
