DENMARK – Vejle attracts world’s best at international Food Photo Festival

The world’s best Food Photographers are gathering in Vejle, southern Jutland, for the International Food Photo Festival on 22-25 October 2015.

vejleSome 500 of the world’s best Food Photographers will soon gather in the Danish city Vejle for the International Food Photo Festival on 22-25th October 2015. And they’ll re-visit again in 2017 and 2019.

Food, including the new Nordic cuisine, is trending massively worldwide these days. Hence, getting the best photographers on board to shoot pictures of produce, crops and carefully created dishes has become an increasingly lucrative business too – in fact, so attractive that food photographers worldwide now have their own international festival; the Food Photo Festival.

The first two festivals were located in Tarragona in Spain, but now the third festival will take place in Vejle, Denmark. The organizers are based in Spain but have had their eyes on the North for a while, as they wanted to find a new attractive location for the international festival that draws some 500 participants from across Europe and much of the rest of the world, including North and South America, Israel and Russia. The organisers chose hot Foodie destination Denmark, and more specifically Vejle, based on several factors, namely; a central location, good size and great atmosphere.

Participants of the Food Photo Festival will discuss and share the latest trends in the photography of food. They will participate in conferences, workshops and cultivate existing or new networks. The festival also invites local citizens to the event to experience, among other things, an excellent food photo exhibition of raw materials, produce and fine gastronomy. The organizers have already decided that the next two festivals in 2017 and 2019 will take place in Vejle too.
