Ballarat International Foto Biennale

Festivals and Celebrations

28 Aug 2021 to 24 Oct 2021 Biennial Event

The Ballarat International Foto Biennale presents acclaimed Australian and international contemporary photography as one of Australia’s pre-eminent photographic festivals.

Immersing the historic city of Ballarat in photographic art for over 14 years, BIFB has enriched the cultural landscape of regional Victoria becoming the most significant, prestigious photographic arts festival in Australia.

Encompassing two major photographic programs, the Biennale presents an exhibition program from domestic and international artists that is new, previously unseen in Australia or conceptualised afresh, alongside an open program which fosters the development of emerging artists each year. BIFB also runs public and education programs, comprising talks, workshops and prizes, which round out the rich and diverse cultural event that attracts more than 30,000 people.

The Ballarat International Foto Biennale will take place over 28 August – 24 October 2021.
