Tirana Photo Festival, the biggest photo festival in Albania
Tirana Photo Festival is an annual photo festival organized by DMO Albania (Destination Management Organisation).
The aim of this Festival is to put in the focus the art of photography through photo competition, exhibitions, seminars, photo tours and more.
How this Festival started?
The idea came after several small photo competitions we organized in social media through Visit Tirana tourism portal. Since 2016, every season we have organized small competitions to promote Tirana, with hashtags, #TiranaSpring; #TiranaSummer; #TiranaAutumn; #TiranaWinter. Seeing the high number of submissions in seasonal photo contests we decided to organize a bigger event, which become Tirana Photo Festival
Thanks to our sponsors such as Tirana Municipality, Ministry of Culture, National History Museum and Fuji Film Albania we made this festival the most popular one in the country.
Who is the organizer?
DMO ALBANIA, is a non profit organisation based in Tirana, which aim is to manage and promote destinations. We work through different projects not only in Tirana but also in UNESCO sites. www.dmoalbania.al
