Egypt’s leading photography school, Photopia, has served as the training ground for some of the country's most acclaimed photographers. Always one step ahead, they’ve successfully helped many artists from all over the country find their footing, display their art, and have the resources to take their skills to the next level. Every year, creatives all over the country await the famed ‘Cairo Photo Week’ to display their work, and attend talks and workshops by acclaimed photographers.


After years of continued success with Cairo Photo Week, Photopia is partnering with Orascom Hotels Management to bring their photography festival to the Red Sea! El Gouna Photo Week’s first edition is set to take place between July 16th and July 23rd, 2022 with an expected turn-up of 10,000 people.


Photographers, retouchers, designers, models, art directors, filmmakers, videographers, fashion directors, food stylists, researchers, and even make-up artists attend Photopia’s Photo Week every year, and it will carry much of that same spirit to El Gouna.


Boasting over 100 hours of educational workshops on photography, more than 25 talks and panels, five workshops and masterclasses, three exhibitions, 20 shooting locations, and over 30 exhibitors, it’s already one of the largest photo-centric events in Egypt to date. The sheer amount of resources offered at El Gouna Photo Week is staggering, but what is more so, is that they’re also offering activities including contests, challenges, networking events, and industry meet-ups. On top of that, attendees will be given free and exclusive access to all shooting locations in El Gouna.


Some of the most notable speakers for the event include Shank, Salma El Kashef, Ali Ali, Karim El Hayawan, Coucla Refaat, and Batool Al Adawi. The event will take place all across El Gouna; by the beach, across a variety of hotels, and at the TUB main stage, while the closing ceremony will end the occasion at Casa Cook Hotel.
