The DOK-festival in Fredrikstad, Norway, is the Norwegian national festival for documentary photography and photojournalism.
The festival is organized by the DOK-foundation and hosted by Pressefotografenes klubb
The festival in Fredrikstad is an event that gathers students, professionals and lecturers mainly from Scandinavia with passion for photography” and me. 😉
“Three days of seminars, presentations and screenings. Artist talks.”
I have had the pleasure to visit DOK 15, DOK 16, DOK 17 and DOK 18. Incredibly inspiring. I have met and talked to many young photo students and experienced photographers and seen the exhibitions of great national and international photographers.
Interns from the Danish newspaper POLITIKEN are valuable as crew at the exhibitions.
The DOK-festival is centered at Litteraturhuset, Fredrikstad.
Every year you can see the graduation exhibition made by (Norwegian and foreign) students from the bachelor program in photojournalism, OsloMet – Oslo Metropolitan University. 2018 they visited China for 7 weeks and documented Chinese everyday life. Presented in the exhibition and book New Era – stories from China.
I recommend taking the opportunity to visit DOK 19, you will not regret it.
