What Makes this event different?

No Fee to Enter.


People who have dreams and ideals are innovators and often manage to change the world.  Presumably, this is because one cannot fulfill a dream on their own; one needs to communicate to the world. By presenting artworks that highlight a wide array of individual dreams, it is our wish to create an opportunity where we can remind ourselves the meaning of the dream in an age that is often criticized for the absence of true dreams and dreamers.



The DongGang International Photo Festival aims to showcase a selection of photography projects from around the world.  The festival’s open call is devoted to offering a platform and supporting photography, showcasing photography and related media from emerging and established artists.


Selected projects will be presented to the DongGang International Photo Festival in the DongGang main exhibition space, screening or outdoor space.
