About SIPF

About the Festival


The Singapore International Photography Festival is a biennial gathering of minds from around the world with the common pursuit of advancing the art and appreciation of photography. It aims to be a much-needed arena for critical thought and academic discussion on photography in Southeast Asia.

The SIPF will also function as a key platform to discover, nurture and propel Southeast Asian photographers onto the international stage. Through its associate programmes, the festival hopes to engage the public and cultivate a larger audience. At the core of SIPF is a firm belief that photography can be enjoyed by all.

SIPF is organised by DECK, an independent art space for photography. DECK is a recipient of the National Arts Council’s Major Grant for the period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2019.
