Once a year, the little Swedish city of Landskrona turns into a buzzing photographic metropolis – Landskrona Foto Festival.
The art of photography becomes a part of the urban environment, in the parks and the shops, while simultaneously occupying the sanctuaries of fine culture. The love of photography, the commitment and drive to make Landskrona a photo city, reaches its crescendo during ten days in September. You cannot fail to notice the ambition: to become The Capital of Photography in Scandinavia. The festival has established itself as our most important photo event nationally, and it has also made an international impact.
This year, over 120 exhibiting photographers from the whole world can be seen in this sixth edition of the festival.
Welcome to ten days of exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and much more!
The festival opens during Friday the 14th of September.
14 – 16 September in Exercishallen
Three days with Photobook focus. Experience exhibitions, photobook fair, quiz, talks and much more!
The winner of Landskrona Foto & Bredfield Dummy Award will be choosen by a jury during August 2018. The winner will be invited to Landskrona during the festival in September.
As part of the official festival program the winner will make an public presentation of his or hers photobook project.
