Festival of Imaging


We are at a loss for words to accurately describe everything we were able to experience together with you over the last few days. It was a "Festival of Imaging" that really deserves its name, with a fantastic program on and off the stages, great artists, creatives and keyspeakers, an enthusiastic patron and an overwhelmed patron. But all this should not keep us from saying THANK YOU in an appropriate way. Without you, none of this would have been possible! Thousands of happy faces can't be mistaken and these were the faces of visitors, exhibitors, partners, friends and colleagues alike.

It is a pity that it is already over. But we hope to see you again next year! From September 21 - 24, 2023, it will be #shareyourvision again, and we can promise you now that we will also increase our numbers next year, for the third edition of PHOTOPIA Hamburg.





Already with its second edition, PHOTOPIA has established itself as the central, new imaging event in Germany. The recipe for success behind it: a successful mix of community festival, keynotes, exhibitions and conferences, which has turned it into a "jour fixe" for users, trade, press and manufacturers in no time at all.

Courageous. Moving. Fascinating. PHOTOPIA is an experience park of photography. First Class.

Director of Communication, DJI

PHOTOPIA was a great success for us this year because we were able to meet our valued users, press representatives, professional photographers, trade partners as well as associations and industry representatives. The event in general offers people interested in photography space to try out new creative ideas and creates multiple opportunities for exchange – from expert know-how live to community platform online – hybrid and modern.

[...] PHOTOPIA has really grown in comparison to the previous year. We were able to inspire the visitors with our stand concept. We were very satisfied with the number of visitors before the final day. This also applies to the number of trade visitors and representatives of the trade. [...]

Managing Director FUJIFILM

PHOTOPIA's commitment to analog photography is great. Our Khromeland was packed throughout with a good mix of influencers, industry greats, amateur & professional photographers. [...]

From reportage to people and advertising photography, the Creative Content Conference at PHOTOPIA Hamburg 2022 attracted professional photographers over three days. There was a really good mood and great atmosphere on all conference days.


For us, PHOTOPIA is an inspiring event format with a mix of product and service innovations, hands-on opportunities and expert insights! A sympathetic festival, where we can bring closer with Voigtländer not only the pure brand and product presentation, but also the diverse handling of our lenses. We are very happy to be part of it for the first time this year.
