Last call for Photoville NYC! The 13th annual free festival returned at the beginning of June with over 85 public art exhibitions, walking tours, panels and workshops. Flickr hosted happy hours and photo walks over the last two weeks and a great time was had! If you’d like a recap of Flickr at Photoville, check out our Flickr x Photoville group. And don’t forget, you have until June 16th to head over to the festival and enjoy the exhibits. If you have any photos from your trip to Photoville, make sure to add them to the Flickr x Photoville group!

For 20 years, Flickr has been the go-to destination for photography enthusiasts, offering a platform to showcase and explore every kind of photography. To help mark the occasion, last month we shared this video with the Flickr community. If you missed it, make sure to take a look at this awesome video and the accompanying Flickr gallery and enjoy the amazing photos shared with us from Flickr members around the world!
