Our aim is to present photography which has rarely or never received any attention in Sweden. Over 120 photographers are represented in some 20 exhibitions in Landskrona. September 8–17 2017.

Annual Photo Competition sponsored by the property company AB Landskronahem. In 2016 the winner was the photographer Hans Jonsson and he’s now exhibiting his series of wet plate collodion images “Mes Amis”



The Photo Society “Urinvånarna” was created for Landskrona Foto Festival 2013, by Caysa Molin, Anders Cöster and Jens Jentin Lindberg, all local photographers. This year’s exhibition consists of newly produced works, shown for the first time during the festival.


This year Landskrona Foto Festival will again be inviting photographers to a portfolio review. The primary purpose is that the show will lead to an offer to the participating photographers to exhibit their pictures at festivals and events around the world. For this reason, several curators from other international photo festivals will be acting as reviewers this year too. Previous years have seen good results, with participants having been invited to festivals in Derby, Leipzig, Dublin and Athens as a direct result of taking part in the review. Several photo books have also been published.

Previous winners:

2014’s winner was Johan Österholm from Malmö.

2015’s winner was Johan Willner from Stockholm. 

2016’s winner was Kacper Kowalski from Poland.




Most photographic works end up sooner or later in a photobook, and so we devote part of Landskrona Foto Festival to this phenomenon. The event, which we call Photobook Day, will be held on Saturday 9 September.

Landskrona Foto Dummy Award is a prize where the winner’s entry is designed, printed and distributed as a book. Four photographers are nominated and present their works during the day. A panel consisting of Maxwell Anderson, publisher and photographer, Sara Arvidsson, critic, and Stephen Gill, photographer, will discuss the works.

The winner of the prize for the Nordic Dummy Award from Norway will be announced.

The book market is open all weekend. This year it consists of small European publishers together with some Swedish photobook publishers and Fotobokhandeln Neva Books.

We exhibit the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards, one of the world’s most prestigious photobook prizes. Don’t miss this only chance in Sweden to see thirty-five of last year’s most acclaimed and talked-about photobooks.

Book exhibition with Svenska Fotobokspriset, Nordic Dummy Award, Landskrona Foto Dummy Award and an exhibition from the publisher Sailor Press, giving opportunities to browse and read a large number of current photobooks.

During the day photographers and publishers will talk about their books, photographers will sign their books and we end the day with a Pecha Kucha where ten or so photographers show their latest publications.
