About the festival

Member of Photo Europe Network

Photometria International Photography Festival is organized by “Entefxis.” Non-profit organization. Organized for the 12th year in the city of Ioannina is the first interactive Photography Festival in which everyone who loves the art of photography can participate and vote.

Our vision is for Photometria International Photography Festival to become a showcase of contemporary photography, to support local and foreign photographers, of education and cultivation of partnerships with cultural organizations and festivals in Greece and abroad. Hopefully, Photometria International Photography Festival is a cross-cultural meeting point, bringing ideas, traditions, worldviews, and expressive media from all over the world. With dedication to the project and wishing for its establishment of the organizers call for participation, not only renowned photographers but also amateurs to take part in the field of expression.

Our expectation is for Photometria Festival to be a cultural umbrella under which photographic expression and creativity grows. Get ready for another Photometria Festival full of creativity, exhibitions, seminars and photographic wanderings.
