HIP Photography Festival is an annual event where the cultural importance of photography is recognised. A celebration of a physical art form, but one which is globally and digitally accessible. An event where professionals come to exhibit, network, sell work, exchange ideas, and meet contacts. But also as an opportunity for the newly qualified, amateur & emerging photographer of any age & ability to immerse themselves in the world of photography, find information, gain support, share their passion and showcase their work alongside the best in the world, to a global network of photographers, peers, curators, editors, agents, photo enthusiasts and the visiting public.
