Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2012 (KLPF) – Malaysia’s biggest and hottest imaging event with a combination of photography and travel elements. This annual festival is recognised as ‘the’ event that promotes the art in photography, encourages interaction and sharing of experiences amongst photography enthusiasts and travellers. It is an interactive, discovery and business-boosting event. Get in touch with the latest innovations in technology and designs of photographic equipment. Explore the choice destinations for photography.
In KLPF 2012, the travel sector is getting a bigger exposure with the setting up of one hall specially dedicated to the FITE (Free Independent Travel Exchange) where opportunities are open to travel business operators and travel organisations to offer their products directly to free independent travellers. Amongst the highlights of KLPF 2012 are:-
• Photo-creator of the Year 2012 where Malaysian photographers are set to vie for the award. This award recognises the creativity and potentials of emerging photographers in Malaysia. Participants are required to submit their work based on the theme “Seni & the City” where “seni” means art in the Malay language.
• “City” a photography exhibition through which we hope to encourage people to observe the surroundings of a city or to savour the process that is transforming our city. This exhibition is a collection of photo images submitted by members of the public.
• A special photo exhibition “Brushed by the Wind” takes on a pictorial travel to the southern part of the African continent spanning across countries like Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. Also not to be missed are our regular interactive sessions like forums and seminars (Photomania and Travelmania) that are the all-time favourites of visitors every year.
KLPF is open to the public and admission is free of charge.
