Marketing Derby is proud to sponsor FORMAT19 which was officially launched last night at the iconic Horse Hospital - the three-tiered progressive arts venue in Bloomsbury, London and will run 15th March - 14th April 2019 at various locations across Derby.
Format International Photography Festival was established in Derby in 2004 and today it is one of the UK's leading international contemporary festivals of photography and related media.
FORMAT organises a year round programme of international commissions, open calls, residencies, conferences and collaborations in the UK and Internationally.
The biennale and off-year programmes celebrate the wealth of contemporary photographic practice. We love photography and all its expanded fields. The programmes feature everything from major conceptual works, participative projects, documentary and all that falls between categorisations, from the mobile phone to the archive.
FORMAT is the place to engage with an incredible range of new work together alongside some of the best-known practitioners in the world. FORMAT is focused on developing opportunities for audiences to see, debate, develop, contribute and participate in the best of what photography is and can be, with comprehensive professional practice programmes and a yearly International Photography Portfolio Review.
Louise Fedotov-Clements, Artistic Director QUAD and Director of FORMAT International Photography Festival, said: "It was a real pleasure to launch FORMAT19:FOREVER//NOW at the Horse Hospital in London. Great to see so many people there. It was a great night."
