About the Program:
ASHK welcomes you to this unique platform where photography aficionados will get together to share their ideas, works, thoughts and artistry. FotoFête helps aspiring photographers to showcase their works and receive feedback from the pros in the industry.
FotoFête is open to students and non-professional photographers. ASHK accepts submission of photographic portfolios from now until September 23, 2016. Shortlisted participants will be chosen to present their works at FotoFête. Each of them will be given five minutes to present 10 of their photographs and speak briefly about the theme, inspirations and photographic techniques of those images. Also, they will talk about their intentions in pursuing a career or why they are interested in photography. A panel of photography professionals will give feedback to the participants after each presentation.
The event is open for public observation. Interested individuals can meet and get a glimpse of the creative works by Hong Kong’s own up-and-coming photographers.
