New York Photo Festival
Designed to be a New York counterpart and thematic successor to the prestigious European photo festivals Les Rencontres d’Arles, PHotoEspaña, Perpignan and Visa pour l’Image—and American festivals such as FotoFest in Texas—the New York Photo Festival creates an international atmosphere of inspiring visual installations, professional and aficionado fellowship and camaraderie, and news-worthy staged presentations, awards ceremonies, and symposia over the course of four-and-a-half days during the busiest photography month in New York City.
The festival was founded by Daniel Power and Frank Evers. The inaugural NYPH (May 14–18, 2008) proved an astounding success, with over 15,000 tickets sold, 2,500 industry professionals and artists, 1,000 members of the international press, packed seating for all day and evening programming events at St. Ann’s Warehouse (450 capacity), 20 countries represented in curated and satellite pavilions, 85,000 clicked site visits, 47,000 blog posts, 2.5 million unique visits to www.nyphotofestival.com, 49 media partners, and over 3,000 submissions from 87 countries for the New York Photo Awards (www.newyorkphotoawards.com). Each year, the New York Photo Festival has been bigger in all respects.
The festival is headquartered in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY.
