The Official CPF Exhibition Programme is for institutions, photographers and visual artists who have their own space available. As part of the Official CPF Exhibition Programme, your exhibition will be promoted through our festival’s communication includring programme, ads, press and social media channels. You will also be invited to professional events during the festival together with national and international photographers, visual artists as well as expert in the field of photography. 

In order to be part of the Official CPF Exhibition Programme, you should be organizing or hosting an exhibition of photography or lens-based open to the public on one or more days in the period between June 1st and 30th 2021. Both established as well as alternative venues, such as cafés, libraries, culture houses etc., can apply.

Once again in 2021 our festival centre will be located at Refshaleøen, while the broader Official Programme will span most of Copenhagen and Southern Sweden. Official Programme partners further enrich the festival by presenting the many facets of photography to both connoisseurs and the general public –  as well as building bridges between both genres and institutions.
