Deadline: 31 May 2019. 350 Photographers from around the World will be exhibited. This year artists from about 100 countries will be hosted at the festival.
Chania International Photo festival has been created by Blank Wall Gallery. Its aim is to gather more than 300 photographers from around the world each year, turning the town of Chania into an international centre of artistic expression focusing on photography. At the same time, we aspire to make this festival the biggest photographic event, since so many international artists are exhibiting their work in Greece. The first step was made last year, when thousands o f people visited the festival.
In our effort the Municipality of Chania responded favorably as a co organizer for the second time, offering the venues for the festival to be held.
You can take part in one of our 16 Categories
The festival will take place at the Center of the Mediterranean Architecture (CAM) in a building dating back from 1595, at the Old Harbor of Chania.
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.
The competition is open to everyone that is over 18 years old, professional or amateur.Entries must be submitted no later than May 31 2019. Beyond this date no submission will be accepted.
The artists who will be exhibited at the festival, will be selected by an international jury committee consisted by distinguished professional photographers and professors of photography.
