Photographic Society of America Worldwide

On behalf of the Photographic Society of America, worldwide, I what to welcome you to the 2023 Asia Photo Festival. This event brings together some of the best photographers in the world and PSA is proud to be a part of this event. Photography is the universal language which we each speak, providing for the creative passion we all posse.

PSA, like many other photographic organizations, is facing a new issue, that being AI generated images. The current stance for PSA is that AI images are not photographs and therefore will not be allowed in any type of exhibition.

Lastly, enjoy your time together and keep clicking

The International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) is once again happy to be associated with the Asia Photo Festival 2023, presented by the Asia Photographers Union (APU). It will help promote mutual understanding among the photographers, and bridge gaps between their different cultures and nationalities.

This is in line with the objectives of FIAP which promotes photographic art in all its aspects through all kinds of photographic events, regardless of race, religion, nationalities, and ideologies. As a worldwide non-profit organisation representing more than two million photographers from over 100 countries, FIAP supports the effort of APU in organising such an event that is also aimed at fostering international friendship.

I wish you all a very enjoyable and fruitful experience at the Asia Photo Festival.

It is such a privilege for me to write a message for Asia Photo Festival this year. Asia Photo Union has been doing such amazing work in gathering and exhibiting masterpieces of photographers around the world.I’d like to congratulate APU President Steven Yee for his enormous effort year after year.

With this year’s theme, “My Photo”, I expects various styles and characteristics that represent the individual’s personality and taste. It is a great theme to show the richness of photography world.

To all fellow photographers, it is great to express your style, but don’t stop there, explore the possibility to elevate it and always strive to be the best.

All the best for this festival and APU.

Edremit Photography and Cinema Art Association (EDFOD)

First of all, I would like to congratulate the founders and participants of the Asian Photography Festival on behalf of myself and Edremit Photography and Cinema Art Association (EDFOD), which I lead.

Photography organizations are very important in terms of exhibiting the works of photographers to art lovers. Photography is global, it knows no boundaries. Organizations such as the Asian Photography Festival help photographers promote their work to the world. Such organizations not only promote photographers, but also strengthen the fellowship of photographers.

I hope this festival inspires amateur photographers to improve themselves.

And finally, I would like to sincerely thank Steven Yee Pui Chung and his fellow APUs for their initiative, positive energy and service in the photography community.

Let's enjoy the festival together.

Dear friends of APU,

Dear friends-photographers of the world, I am happy to hear that the 2nd Asia Photo Festival 2021 is a fact!

We, in GPU, are thrilled to join this initiative, the 2nd Asia Photo Festival for second time!

During this 2nd peculiar year, in which people are forced to stay away from each other, it is absolutely necessary to maintain our initial habits, which of course have to adjust to current conditions, for the sake of human health.

But health is not just physical, but also mental. So, is there a better way to improve our bad psychology rather than involving ourselves in activities related to what we mostly love? This is one the reasons why, we in GPU commend this effort.

We are here to present GPU to the people, as an international federation for the people who love photography! For the people who are truly interested in joining a universal entity, become part of it, connect with other people, gain real distinctions, join educative programs and further activities. Just to mention that just for 2020 and 2021, and despite the difficulties, among others, GPU has organized photographic webinars session for multiple photography topics, has prepared 2 issues of GPU magazine distributed globally, has evaluated and approved a lot of titles, Crown and VIP applications and has provided GPU licenses to international photographic salons. And the year has not come to its end. A number of interesting projects are on their way.

I hope this year to be the last one with all these restrictions. I hope to be free again to join our lives as we did till 2019!

At last but not least, we sincerely wish to thank Steven Yee Pui Chung and APU friends for their initiative, for their positive energy and for their service at the photography community!!!

Let’s enjoy the 2nd festival together!!!

Congratulations to the Asia Photo Festival 2021 hosted by Asia Photographers Union. The Myanmar Photographic Society is proud to participate in this photo festival for two consecutive years. The theme for this year’s Asia Photo Festival 2021 is “Home”. It is said that the world is now a big village. So photography is a home in that huge village. All photographers live in this same home together. We can share photography skills with each other. We can learn the photography together in this home.

Thanks also to Asia Photographers Union for allowing us to participate in this year’s Asia Photo Festival 2021 again. This is a collaboration not only at the ASEAN level but also at the global level. Photographers living in the same home should be friendly. We started to grow together under one roof. Through this Asia Photo Festival, photo societies can interact with each other. We believe that cooperation will increase. I wish Asia Photo Festival a long and successful one.
