About Campaign

The 7th SIPF 2020 is taking place from 5 November 2020 to 30 January 2021. Prior to the pandemic outbreak, the theme Departing and Arriving seeks to explore our migrant histories and identities in both the local and global context. In the process of witnessing and experiencing the changes that have taken place in our world, the theme has evolved to take on a reflective outlook at the human condition. In the trajectory of arriving at a new normal is the discovery of a deeply rooted desire for a better tomorrow.

In the upcoming 7th edition, SIPF is featuring the works of 50 artists including Kurt Tong (Hong Kong), JR (France), Bob Lee (Singapore), Holycrap (Singapore), and ABC Photography - a collection of images by international photographers for children - to name a few. Canvassing stories by these international artists, SIPF transforms pockets of spaces around Singapore into portals of time and space encapsulated by images. The festival invites everyone to step into a shared world of photography - to create moments and chart journeys as they travel through visual narratives.

SIPF is organised by DECK, an independent arts space for photography (a registered charity under Art Photography Ltd) and a recipient of the National Arts Council's Major Grant Scheme. Since its inauguration in 2008, festival costs are covered by revenue from sales of tickets, programmes, merchandise, corporate sponsorship, public donations from our community.

Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) is a biennial gathering of minds from around the world with the common pursuit to advance the art and appreciation of photography. It aims to be a much-needed arena for critical thought and academic discourse on photography in Southeast Asia. SIPF will also function as a key platform to discover, nurture, and propel Southeast Asian photographers onto the international stage. Through its satellite programmes, the festival hopes to engage the public and cultivate a larger audience. At the core of SIPF is a firm belief that photography can be enjoyed by all. The upcoming 7th edition of SIPF will take place from 5 November 2020 to 31 January 2021. (www.sipf.sg)
