ORGANIZATION BIO

The International Photo Festival Leiden started in 2013 as a festival dedicated to new photography talent. At each festival, an expert jury selects 20 talents from the European Union with less than five years’ professional experience. Their work travels the world, from New York to Sydney. The main festival is held in the city of Leiden, the hometown of Rembrandt and Mondriaan’s movement ‘De Stijl’. The festival lasts for three weeks, featuring outdoor exhibits, workshops and presentations. There, the top 20 photographers are showcased, as well as work from IPFL’s international festival partners.

 

The mix of countries, experience and work is inspirational for professionals, as well as students and photography lovers. The IPFL is run by volunteers and is supported by several sponsors, funds and private donors.
