WHO WE ARE
Belgrade Photo Month is a team of 4 people passionate about art and photography.
Our mission is to give visibility to Serbian photographers and photography itself. To show Serbia, the Balkans and the world what is happening in Belgrade, one of the most exciting cities in Europe. To show Serbia what is happening in the world by bringing international photographers to the city and organizing accompanying events during 30 days – from April 1st to 30th 2016, the 1st edition of the annual event.
Until today there wasn’t anything similar to this in this area. The nearest ones are Ljubljana, Vienna, Budapest or Bratislava. Belgrade deserves to be in the photography map and we will put it in. With humility, but also with ambition.
For this first edition we will focus on photography exhibitions all around the city of Belgrade, but we will also include screenings of movies with photography as main topic, promoting the photography material and book market, workshops, lectures, portfolio reviews, etc. all in collaboration with different people and cultural collectives from Belgrade.
Who can participate on this event: art galleries, art and cultural institutions, cafés and clubs which tend to organize photography exhibitions or movie screenings, groups interested in organizing workshops or any other photography related activities.
Participation requirements: Just the commitment to work during April 2016 in the same direction as Belgrade Photo Month. Nothing more. No extra working hours, no extra expenses, there is no fee to pay for being the part of the event.
What we offers to the participants: The promotion of the event in Serbia but also in international photography webs and magazines. We will make a catalogue with all the details regarding the participants, including a map with all the related events and places around the city and other relevant information as well.
We’re not sending a starship to the moon, we just want to put Serbia on a photography map of the world!
