The Cleveland Photo Fest was established in 2019 as an annual event for the benefit of the Greater Clevelanders who support photography as a fine art. Our mission is to strengthen the appreciation of photography as a major force in today’s visually driven culture. Exhibitions, publications, educational and fellowship programming are at the core of our active engagement with the Cleveland community.
The Cleveland Photo Fest has enlisted the local gallery and art-based community to share in CPF events. Participants have committed to sponsor or participate in photography related exhibitions in September and/or October of 2019. Community-oriented programming is an essential element of all CPF activities. To promote city-wide involvement, the CPF has partnered with local photographers, photography clubs, photo suppliers, national and professional organizations, educational institutions, public media and private enterprises.
The Cleveland Photographic Workshop and Gemini Developers (both a volunteer run 501.C.3 corporation) serves the local and national community of photographers and photography supporters through the programming of photographic exhibitions, educational opportunities and social engagement.
