The Photo Artists Society of Korea

The Photo Artists Society of Korea has been the nation’s foremost photography association since its establishment in 1961. Through its members, the society plays an important role in the development of local culture and photography by supporting local artists, programs, and other endeavors in the field. In 2014, Seoul was announced as the host of the 33rd Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique (FIAP) Congress, which in 2016 will bring to the city around 800 of the world’s top photographers from 87 countries. FIAP, also known in English as the International Federation of Photographic Art, is the only photographic society to be officially recognized by UNESCO. Its membership includes over one million persons affiliated with FIAP-approved branches and associations. Congresses are held every two years in rotation.
