About Atlanta Celebrates Photography

Enrich. Inspire. Transform.
ACP + ATL

Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to cultivating the photographic arts and enriching Atlanta’s cultural community.

ACP produces one of the country’s largest annual festivals, ACPfest, professional development programs, education engagements, lectures, public art, and high-quality photography experiences.

Founded in 1998, ACP demonstrates a sustained commitment to making Atlanta the hub for photography by expanding public interest in photography and public art.

We provide meaningful opportunities for artists to create, support underserved lens-based artists, and design dynamic platforms for audiences to connect through diverse programs and public art initiatives.
