During the 7-day Xposure International Photography Festival in the United Arab Emirates, industry experts and some of the world's most influential photographers gather to network and showcase their work.


Xposure is an international photography festival that offers photography talks, competitions, portfolio reviews, workshops, screenings and a trade show featuring the latest gear and trends.

The workshops at Xposure span from beginner classes covering the fundamentals of photography to more advanced sessions delving into specific topics or genres, with many beginner workshops being subsidized.

At the trade show, professional photographers, enthusiasts, students, and educators have the opportunity to explore the latest products and services while staying updated on the current trends in photography and imaging.

The festival also offers Focus Groups: planned discussions led by a mentor to gather opinions on a defined photographic or filmmaking topic. Focus groups encourage open-minded discussions and enable opportunities for questions and answers.

Other highlights include the screening program, which presents a diverse selection of award-winning films from around the world and a platform for emerging and established filmmakers; and the sessions of Capture Success, a personalized consultation for emerging photographers, where they can get expert guidance on market trends, portfolio development, pricing, and more. 

A new feature in the 2024 edition is Stage X, a space where attendees can watch live product presentations and short film screenings for free, with a curated schedule for each of the seven festival days.
