Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2022

KLPF 2022

The Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2022 is back again this September and will be held at the Viva Shopping Mall in KL city.

For photographers, KLPF is the biggest and largest photography exhibition and festival in the country, which attract all kinds of photographers and visitors alike.

The last Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2021 was held on a last-minute arrangement after the Malaysian government decided to open the borders and loosen the SOPs for the Civid19 pandemic.

Because of this arrangement, the organisers decided to go ahead but make it a hybrid format event where it was live-streamed on their official Facebook channel.

During the event, they also had various talk sessions with renowned photographers and industry players via Zoom.

For KLPF2021, a similar concept will also be done, and a little more focus will be put on the actual event at Viva Shopping Mall.

Who is Participating in KLPF 2022?

While many assume this is just a photographer's gathering, you will be surprised to see who participates in the event.

We will see tourism boards, NGOs, camera shops, and camera and photography brands participating. Several photographic societies and clubs are also on the list.

And there are even some overseas companies that also take part in promoting various photography-related tourism activities. Some schools also take part as exhibitors.

Smartphone brands are also no strangers to the event, as over the years, notable brands have made their presence at KLPF.
