FESTIVAL
The Hong Kong International Photo Festival (HKIPF) was launched in 2010. In each edition, the Festival focuses on a different theme, introducing noteworthy photographers, trends, and movements and discussing manifold issues and perspectives. Through a wide range of public programmes, the Festival bridges Hong Kong and international visual practitioners, creating conversations between people and place, past and present, and oneself and the world.

In 2018, we began our Satellite Exhibitions Project, calling for visual practitioners working across different forms of expression to create exhibitions that coincide with the main Festival. These exhibitions, held across a range of public venues, connect artists with various communities across Hong Kong.

In 2019, we launched the inaugural Photography Is Life Festival, with three days of free events, with a camera fair, photobook showcase, live photo-shoot, workshops with families, artist presentations, concerts and exhibitions, and more. The Festival, both local and international, positions photography as an everyday response to life and aspires to develop platforms for a robust exchange of ideas. In the same year, the Festival initiated the Photographer Incubator Project to foster new creative forces in Hong Kong’s photographic circles by nurturing emerging image makers.

The Curator of the Hong Kong International Photo Festival 2020 is Mr Lau Ching Ping.

The Hong Kong International Photo Festival is organized by the Hong Kong Photographic Culture Association, founded in 2009 by 19 Hong Kong photographers and awarded the 2011 Hong Kong Arts Development Council Award for Arts Promotion. Since 2014, the Association has been financially supported by the Springboard Grant under the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme and since 2018 the Art Development Matching Grants Scheme of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government.
