Overview

Belfast Photo Festival is a charitable organisation that hosts an annual event at diverse locations citywide. They catalyse local debate, creative development and financial opportunities with a combination of commissions, entrepreneurship and global arts leadership. The festival is proud of its 13 year longevity, resilience, innovation and adaptation across arts and public engagement. Built on a track record and reputation of reaching and positively impacting numerous and diverse, national and international audiences.

Belfast Photo Festival is the UK and Ireland's largest annual festival of photography and attracts upwards of 100 thousand physical visitors a year. It celebrates the finest national and international contemporary photography across Northern Ireland’s museums, galleries and public spaces. Capturing wide appeal through popular culture, accessible themes and unexpected encounters with engaging photography, the festival aims to instil and inspire public enjoyment,  participation, positive social and environmental impact by utilising the most accessible of artistic mediums and bringing it to both established and new audiences.

Since 2011, the organisation has hosted a Festival every year in Belfast, varying the theme, scale, reach, form, and venue partners to maximise its resources and reach. Since 2014 it has grown responsibly in turnover and governance. Already supported by core investment, staff, and capacity growth, 2024 will see the organisation launch our 10th, largest, and most ambitious edition yet with additional project funding and commissioning to enable us to increase our participation, social impact and evaluations.
