Photo World Asia 2017 will be on January 26-31 in Makati, Philippines, the 31st edition of the international conference of photographers and photography trade show held under the auspices of the Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation. This is the time of year when professional and hobby photographers compare notes, share experiences, and see what’s new in the industry.

There are two components of the event: the photography trade show at the Glorietta Ayala Malls will showcase the latest trends and products in the industry, with major camera manufacturers and suppliers attending, and the international photographers’ conference at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) where photographers can learn from each other’s experiences to improve their craft.

Chairman for Photo World Asia 2017 is Prof. Joey Tañedo, professor at the UP College of Fine Arts, FPPF instructor, and Visual Arts director at the National Commission for Culture and the Arts. Theme for the 2017 conference is: “Tell Your Stories Well with Better Photography”.

In line with the theme, here is the line-up of speakers and schedule of activities for Photo World Asia 2017, January 26-31 in Makati:
