Copenhagen Photo Festival is an annual event that takes place in June. For eleven days, photography is put on the agenda with exhibitions, workshops, seminars, photo tours, portfolio reviews and more. The festival co-operates with galleries, museums and cultural institutions around Copenhagen and southern Sweden and have exhibitions in public spaces including all metro trains and City Fence.

The festival center is called Photo City, which is an old, beautiful transformer station in Østerbro. In 2017 Photo City provided the setting for 11 exhibitions, while Photo Stage was the stage for artist talks, workshops and debates. Copenhagen Photo Festival had 54.925 visitors in 2018 and 56 exhibitions in collaboration with 46 different exhibition sites, including Photographic Centre and The National Museum of Photography.

Copenhagen Photo Festival is more than a photo festival. The vision is to strengthen our ability to consider photography as a form of expression. This is realised through our mission which is to create a year-round platform, which: curates exhibitions both physically and online, debates through Photo Stage and the educational portal efterbilleder.dk, engages people by organizing workshops, photo projects, Insta-walks etc. and informs about photography via social media and the media channel Look & Listen.
