With the prolonging of the ban on public gatherings in Denmark, Copenhagen Photo Festival has decided to cancel this year’s festival, scheduled to take place from June 4th to 14th. With the
campaign #cpfcelebratingphotography, the audience can continue to experience art photography of the highest calibre on the festival’s digital platforms, as well as highlights from the programme to be exhibited in and around Copenhagen’s urban spaces in June.

”Copenhagen Photo Festival underlines from its very first year, just how relevant the unbending photo art can be. And thus also why the festival should be an annual event on the Danish art scene.”

Matthias Hvass Borello, 2010.

“The experience of attending the Copenhagen Photo Festival was very productive. I saw great art exhibitions, met interesting artists and heard world-class scholarly lectures at the symposium. One of the best festivals I have attended.”

Karen Irvine, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago. 2017.

“The festival celebrates photography throughout the city with a program that takes the interaction of contemporary art, everyday photography and urban space to a higher level.”

Camera Obscura Online Photography Magazine, 2011
