Belfast Photo Festival Returns for its 10th Edition

    Over 46 international artists will be exhibiting in Belfast Photo Festival’s 10th edition, Northern Ireland’s leading visual arts festival.

    Divergence is the theme of this year’s festival. Featuring notable exhibitions by artists Richard Mosse, Matthias Oostrik, and many more, the show explores how contemporary photographers interpret climate emergencies, rapid digitalization, and ethical questions surrounding artificial intelligence. 

    Michael Weir, the Belfast Photo Festival director, commented: “We’re delighted to celebrate the 10th edition of Belfast Photo Festival by animating the city’s public spaces and its remarkably built heritage with world-class visual art. Over the last decade, the festival has really pushed the boundaries and innovated new ways for audiences to engage with photography. Our reach continues to grow and the appeal of this place as a cultural capital is truly global. International artists are keen to present their work on these shores and that’s reflected by the huge response to our Open Submission competition, which attracted entries from photographers around the worldA massive congratulations to this year’s award recipient, Adam Rouhana, whose work is among 10 diverse and gender-balanced projects selected by an expert panel of independent judges to be presented at this year’s festival.” 

    Belfast Photo Festival runs from June 6th to June 30th, 2024. To learn more, visit
