Ballarat International Foto Biennale is a vibrant festival that brings prominent international and national photographers to Ballarat, providing opportunities for experienced and emerging artists to display their work across the city. In 2021 our festival will run from 28 August to 24 October. Volunteers are integral to our success, helping to creating the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that our festival has become renowned for. We would love for you to come and join in the fun.

We aim to be Australia's leading photographic festival. We've done this by consistently finding new ways to engage audiences with photography, responding to our audience's needs, their changing vision of art and culture, and the role it plays in shaping Ballarat.
