The works of Helsinki Photo Festival's 2020 edition are on display at the Stoa cultural centre in Itäkeskus as well as at the inner yard and on the Museokatu-Töölönkatu wall of the National Museum of Finland. The theme of this outdoor photo festival this year is TRUST.

The opening of the festival was celebrated at the National Museum's inner yard on Wednesday 8 July with a free event open for all.

The works of the festival were chosen by an international professional jury.

Some of the works will be on display at Stoa until August. Works are also on display at Culture Factory Korjaamo and at the Helsinki Central Railway Station.

The National Museum of Finland hosts the festival's Nordic Village. Works will be on display at the museum until September.
