Kuala Lumpur Photography Festival 2023 Annual Theme Exhibition

We are Family

Family can be extended beyond our parents, siblings, children and communities.
Family represents respect for and appreciation of one another regardless of age, ethnicity, religion,
status, capability, skill, talent, etc.
In PHOTOGRAPHY, interpretation is always practised at its widest sense with much inclusivity.
In conjunction with World Photography Day this year, the KLPF 2023 invites photographers to
celebrate our diversity and show the world “We are Family”.

We welcome your submission of single still images.
