The fourth biennial Augusta Photography Festival is a ten-day celebration of the art, craft and pure joy of photography. Dozens of workshops allow photographers at all levels to enhance their skills. Exhibits and gallery shows offer a feast for the eyes and spirit. Photo walks provide inspiration, camaraderie and creative challenge. And the photo competition, a highlight of every Festival, offers photographers the thrill of competing for thousands of dollars in cash prizes.

Join us this fall in Augusta, Georgia, for 11 days of photographic excitement! 

Special APF rates are being offered at selected Augusta Hotels.
