About The Hong Kong International Photo Festival

The Hong Kong International Photo Festival (HKIPF) is a biennial festival dedicated to promoting photographic art and culture in Hong Kong. Launched in 2010, every edition of HKIPF features a series of themed exhibitions in different areas of photography covering a wide spectrum of subject matters, and an array of events throughout the territory. The Festival has attracted tens of thousands of visitors, creating a photographic ethos and fostering the art and culture of photography in Hong Kong. Through collaboration with local and international photographic organizations, HKIPF aims to develop Hong Kong into a hub for the exchange and sharing of creative ideas, technical knowledge and valuable experience in photography. In 2011, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council honored the Festival with the Award for Arts Promotion. Since 2014, the Festival is financially supported by the Springboard Grant under the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The Hong Kong International Photo Festival is organized by the Hong Kong Photographic Culture Association, currently chaired by Alfred Ko Chi Keung.
