AboutWe are pleased to announce that the biggest and most ambitious, sixth edition of the biennale FORMAT International Photography Festival will take place in Derby UK between 8 March and 7 April 2013.
Established in 2004 by Louise Clements and Mike Brown, the biennale festival celebrates the wealth of contemporary practice in international photography and is now one of the UK's leading non-profit international contemporary festivals of photography and related media.
FORMAT is focused on developing opportunities to platform the work of international photographers and to provide links for local/national practitioners to show work, exchange opportunities, skills and knowledge and for audiences to see, debate, develop and engage in the best of what photography is and can be.
FORMAT is curated by Louise Clements, QUAD & FORMAT Artistic Director, and organised by QUAD in partnership with: Derby City Council, University of Derby & Derby Museums.
FORMAT11 welcomed Joel Meyerowtiz as it's theme Patron, alongside long-standing FORMAT supporter and Patron, Brian Griffin.
