Athens Photo Festival is the leading international festival of photography in Southeastern Europe. Exploring issues relevant to our times, our programmes work internationally, nationally and locally, encompassing a variety of activities that aim at fostering a critical understanding of contemporary culture and society through photography and related media.

The main programme will take place from 3 June through 26 July 2015, at the Benaki Museum, one of the oldest and most prestigious museums in Greece. At the core of the programme is a series of solo and group exhibitions from photographers and artists, as well as a range of events, including portfolio reviews, screenings, workshops, talks (the so-called ‘Photo Voices’) and participatory projects. In addition to the main venue based programme, the festival encourages community involvement through the satellite exhibitions across the city of Athens.

The Athens Photo Festival, presented by the Hellenic Centre for Photography, has opened submissions for the 2015 main programme.  Artist/photographers, collectives and curators from all over the world are invited to submit their work. Athens Photo Festival is also accepting submissions for its screening programme and photobook show.

There are three categories for submission:
• Main Exhibitions
• Screenings
• Photobook Show

The festival focuses on a specific theme, encompassing a range of photo-based practices. The 2015 festival theme, under the title “Reframing Memory”, explores the relationship between past and present, both experimental and mainstream, bringing together a wide range of international artistic positions.
