Flickr does not provide any such facility as of now. Flickr users are allowed to upload files only and not folders. Even if you try to drag and drop the entire folder into Flickr Photo upload window, it won't accept it. It forces you to select individual photo or video files
However, if you still wish to upload entire photo folder to Flickr, you can take help of third party Flickr photo uploaders. They allow you to bulk upload photos to Flickr. PicBackMan is one such third party Flickr uploader, where you just associate the photo folder(s) and click upload. All your photos will be uploaded in forms of photostreams.
The plus point of using a third party flickr uploader like PicBackMan is, that if the folder on your computer has sub-folders, PicBackMan will upload them as individual photostreams without causing you any extra effort.
So, as far as uploading folders to Flickr is concerned, you can do so using external Flickr uploaders. But, if you wish to upload folders through Flickr's web interface, it is not possible as yet.

... an excellent job of uploading more then 300GB of photos to 2 different services
I have a large collection of photos and videos to upload on some of my storage account and I was looking for an application that can do it all automatically, and that it did especially well. I found a definitive answer to my needs thanks to this amazing program and that it is constantly improving whith new fantastic features.
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
