... in June 2021

The Fotodoks Team would like to thank all the participating artists, guests, helpers, sponsors, partners and, very importantly, the visitors. We are looking forward so seeing you again at the next edition of the Festival in June 2021!

Festival for Contemporary Documentary Photography

Fotodoks is an international and ambitious festival that reflects and discusses contemporary documentary photography in a lively and personal atmosphere. Focusing on a different theme and partner region for each edition, Fotodoks perceives itself as an independent forum, which takes place in Munich every second year and has established itself since 2008 as the largest festival for documentary photography in the German-speaking world.

Meet the Fotodogs

Fotodoks is organised and realised by a team of photographers, curators and cultural managers who set up the festival each year with a great deal of enthusiasm, idealism and invested time to establish it as a special and inspiring event in the calendar of photo festivals.
