The fourth biennial Augusta Photography Festival is a ten-day celebration of the art, craft and pure joy of photography. Dozens of workshops allow photographers at all levels to enhance their skills. Exhibits and gallery shows offer a feast for the eyes and spirit. Photo walks provide inspiration, camaraderie and creative challenge. And the photo competition, a highlight of every Festival, offers photographers the thrill of competing for thousands of dollars in cash prizes.
