The Ballarat International Foto Biennale Inc (BIFB) is a not for profit organisation presenting a month­‐long biennial festival of contemporary photography in the historical city of Ballarat, in regional Victoria.

The festival is the second largest economic impact event in Ballarat, contributing over $1.4m biannually.

BIFB comprises of two major exhibition programs including the Core Program, curated biennale exhibition of 20 leading Australian and international photographic artists, presented in eight heritage buildings in Ballarat. The Core Program is complimented by an open entry Fringe Program, a city‐wide presentation of over 200 artists staged in more than 80 venues including cafes and galleries, throughout project spaces, and across public sites.

These exhibitions are complemented by an extensive Events Program that encourages the active participation of the general public and photographic practitioners of all levels through its program of workshops, seminars, audio­‐visual projections, master‐classes, artist floor‐talks, portfolio reviews, an education program and photographic competitions and prizes.

We are currently the 2015 edition of the festival that will be staged from 22 August to 20 September 2015.
