CIP Festival 2020

The Chania International Photo Festival is pleased to announce that it will be held as always, this year, too. Despite the unprecedented situation that the whole planet experienced this winter, we had an overwhelming response by photographers worldwide.
From 12 to 18 of August 2020 at the Great Arsenali (Centre of Mediterranean Architecture), at the Old Port of Chania, photos by more than 300 artists from 77 countries will be presented. The Cip Festival will once again be broadcasted through LensCulture, an international photography platform with millions of registered photographers. This way we managed to have a much greater reach for the Festival globally.

An international jury consisting of 15 judges was responsible for selecting the best photos of those submitted. This top selection will be exhibited at the Festival.
