Chania International Photo Festival 2018

Chania International Photo Festival 2018

Chania International Photo festival has been created by Blank Wall Gallery. Its aim is to gather 350 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 this will be the first time that so many international artists will be exhibiting their work in Greece.
In our effort the Municipality of Chania responded favorably as a co organizer offering the venues for the festival to be held.

You can take part in one of our 16 Categories

The festival will take place the summer of 2018 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 submission of photographs for the specific contest is free.

You can submit all your photographs in one category (i.e. portraits 5 photographs) or up to 5 categories (one photograph in each), or in any other combination you wish (i.e. Portrait 2 photographs / panoramic 1 photograph / Fine Art 2 photographs).

Each participation can be distinguished in up to 2 categories.

Each photographer has the right to make only one submission. In case there are more than one submissions from the same photographer all of them will be immediately disqualified.
All artists can submit their work for free. Only those who will be chosen to participate in the festival will have to pay a participation fee.
Those of the artists who have sumbitted their work until March 29th and will be chosen for the festival, will have to pay a participation fee of €29.
The rest of the artists who will submit their work until May 20th and will be chosenm will have to pay a participation fee of €36.
