The workshop program at BERLIN PHOTO WEEK also continues to grow, supported by the organizational team of Photo+Adventure Duisburg. For the entire duration of BERLIN PHOTO WEEK photographers of all levels can book a workshop spot to explore a variety of topics: from light painting for beginners with ZOLAQ – powered by Olympus – to boxing or nocturnal swimming pool photography at Haubentaucher, or photowalks through Berlin. The creative diversity of the R.A.W.-Gelände and the city of Berlin make the workshop program a very special experience.

Another highlight is the 50m-long open air exhibition on Revaler Strasse, created in cooperation with the Berlin Senate. For this exhibition, young photographers in Berlin are invited to send in their photographs depicting their experiences from the summer of ‘21. Entries can be submitted until July 26 by email at: or on Instagram.
