7th Chania International Photo Festival ends 31 March 2024

Deadline: 31 March 2024. During the last six years, we managed to make this festival an established international institution. In our effort the Municipality of Chania responded favorably as a co organiser, offering the venues for the festival to be held.

You can take part in one of our 16 Categories

Cip festival will be held in the old town of Chania
which is visited by thousands of people every summer
The festival will take place at the Center of the Mediterranean Architecture (CAM) in a building dating back from 1595. The building is known as the Grand Arsenali and was the biggest shipyard located in the Venetian port of Chania. During its lifetime it has hosted many Public Services of the Town of Chania. In 1997 started its renovation, which turned the building into one of the most important cultural centers in Crete. Some of the biggest events, which take place in Chania, are hosted in its premises. It is easily accessible and visited by thousands of people daily.
During the years of its presence the Festival has also used the Hamam on Katre Street and the Mikis Theodorakis Theatre, at the Old Harbor of Chania.

The submission of photographs for the specific contest is free.

Only the artists who will be chosen to participate in the exhibition and be presented at the web page of Cip festival, will have to pay the participation fee.
