Deadline: 31 March 2023. Chania International Photo festival has been created by Blank Wall Gallery. Its aim is to gather more than 500 photographers from around the world each year, turning the town of Chania into an international centre of artistic expression focusing on photography. During the last five 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.
The festival will take place at the Center of the Mediterranean Architecture (CAM) in a building dating back from 1595 and at the newly refurbished Mikis Theodorakis Theatre, 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 photographs exhibited at the festival will be printed and framed free of charge.
Everything needed for the realisation of the exhibition (printing of your photographs on 260 gsm paper, framing, hanging of the photos, press releases, invitations, opening night and supervision) are provided without any additional charge.
