About the Helsinki Photomedia Conference
Helsinki Photomedia is a biennial photography research conference organized by four Finnish universities since 2012. The first Helsinki Photomedia conference was held in 2012 to fill a void: Photography studies lacked a regular, international research forum for discussing and sharing results and ideas. This was despite the rapid transformation and diversification in photography and the recent surge in photography research all over the world.

The conference offers various platforms where artistic, philosophical, social, cultural, economical and technological approaches to photography meet. We welcome submissions from all areas of photography research. Since 2016 photography education has been one of the areas and we welcome submissions for the educational panel for presenting educational projects and related research. The conference language is English.
