Month of Photography

Month of Photography is a biennial festival of photography that celebrates the medium through exhibitions, events and programs at more than 80 venues across the Denver Metro region.

The next Month of Photography festival will take place in March 2021.

Every other year, Month of Photography (aka “MoP”) transforms the Denver Metro region into a feast of photography. More than 80 galleries, museums, and other venues participate by presenting photography exhibitions, artist talks, tours, receptions and events. It’s an incredible opportunity to see outstanding photography from around the world, get inspired and explore the region’s arts scene.


For working photographers, a major highlight of the festival is the MoP Portfolio Reviews. Over two days, registered photographers spend dedicated time with leading curators, gallery owners, editors, and other professionals in the national photography community. Whether you’re seeking exposure for a finished portfolio or feedback on a project in progress, MoP Reviews can help you advance your practice and career. In previous years, numerous photographers have left with opportunities to exhibit, publish, and sell their work.


The festival also includes a Portfolio Walk, where the public is invited to browse an impressive display of photography and meet artists in a casual setting.
