The biennial Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) is back for its 8th edition in 2022 with one full month of exciting international and local exhibitions, curated tours and masterclass seminars lined up for people of all ages and skill sets. From 1 October 2022, festival-goers and public members are invited to explore exhibitions across various venues, take part in guided photography walks and tours, join in online discussions and springboard their career in photography through exchanges, mentorship and more.

In coming 2022, as the global community strives for full vaccination, and to open travel borders, SIPF as an international platform aims to continue creative conversations between Singapore and global communities. The SIPF function as a key platform to discover, nurture and propel Southeast Asian photographers onto the international stage. Through its associate 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.

With the goal to reduce barrier for the public community and visitors who are new to the festival, we aim to raise $80,000 to provide free admission to exhibition and weekend programmes for the community to participate, and to be inspired by the diverse expressions through photography arts.
