The Festival

If you love photography, in November all the lenses will be pointed towards Siena and its SIPAContest Festival. The event, a tribute to visual art, is organized and divided into personal and collective exhibitions, workshops, photo-tours, seminars, conferences, projections, guided tours on the spot and many other events like the Award Ceremony which will conclude in “grand style” the “Siena International Photo Awards" 2018 Edition. We are talking about one of the most important international photography contest, with 45.000 images coming from 127 countries around the world. The awarded pictures, together with hundreds of other images among the best presented, will compose the exhibition “Beyond the Lens”.

SIPAContest will provide unique opportunities to deepen your photography skills thanks to the participation of important international photographers. Workshops as well as excursions will be organized to discover one of the most visited and portrayed territory in the world: from the "Chianti at sunset" photo tour, to the path discovering "Siena at dawn".
