Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP)
produces the largest annual, community-oriented photography festival in the USA. Through our annual October festival and year-round programming, ACP seeks to involve anyone who has taken or shared a photograph to explore the power of photography as a language we all speak, to increase accessibility to the arts, to interact with the local community and enrich Atlanta’s cultural offerings.
Through the festival, each part of the city is touched by a variety of events and exhibitions – whether they're at the world's busiest airport, at bustling Piedmont Park, or tucked away in quiet corners of Atlanta's outskirts - we transform studios, galleries, museums and public spaces into a coordinated cultural experience!
Your support helps ACP produce about 20 programs, most of which are free and open to the public. These programs range from acclaimed public art, lectures, workshops, exhibitions, international collaborative projects, a film series, programs with youth in high schools and middle schools, and much more. We also produce year long programs like our portraiture class with inpatient teens at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Entering our 21st year, ACP remains the only organization that supports multiple levels of Atlanta’s photography community, from amateur hobbyist to full-time artist, and promotes them, both locally and nationally. ACP also collaborates with museums, academic and commercial art institutions as well as alternative spaces to promote exhibitions and programs of high quality that enrich our community.
We cannot succeed or continue to offer so many diverse programs
(see ‘programs’ at ACPinfo.org
) without the generous support of people like yourself.
We strive to make an impact on Atlanta’s cultural landscape, the photography loving community and in the lives of everyday individuals.
On behalf of all of ACP’s staff, Board and future festival participants, thank you for your support!
