Launched in 2010, the Copenhagen Photo Festival features over 50 photo exhibitions in several locations around Østerbro.

This festival has grown to be Scandinavia’s largest photo festival and will showcase some of the best photographs from around the world.



The main exhibition will take place at Photo City in Østerbro where there will also be an opportunity to listen to talks, take part in debates, and attend workshops.

Also on display at Photo City will be the winners of the open call contest, to which over 250 photographers from 30 different countries submitted their works to be selected by a grand jury in Copenhagen.
