The event started in 1999, which was when the first batch of photographers came to Beijing to document the city's fantastic moments. Over the span of 17 years, there have been over a hundred photographers from all over the world who have taken tens of thousands of images in Beijing, all of which have become precious material to display and witness the transformation of the historical city.

This year, 20 photographers who specialize in different fields of photography (landscape, people, architecture, etc) and come from different countries from around the world have gathered again. They will visit 16 districts of Beijing, shooting the cultural, technological and scenic landscapes of the city from their perspectives.
