FORMAT11 Open Submissions, receiving applications NOW - only until Thursday 10th June, so hurry and get your submissions in fast.

The FORMAT OPEN SUBMISSIONS website gives photographer’s all over the world a chance to submit new or exisiting work, of which a number will then be selected by judges to appear in the FORMAT11 EXPOSURE exhibition taking place in Derby next year.

The website functionality enables photographers to submit their work and pay for their submissions online. The administration of the site enables the FORMAT judges to view submitted entries and shortlist them independently online. The final shortlist will then be judged by a panel of industry experts.

‘Right Here, Right Now’ Exposures from the public realm
Artists working with or about photography and related media are invited to submit proposals for exhibitions or events, including new or existing works for exhibition or presentation as part of the EXPOSURE section of the festival. These opportunities are open to any artist/photographer based in the UK or Internationally.

The EXPOSURE exhibitions for FORMAT11 will be held in 30 venues throughout Derby city centre. Selected artists will be included in the FORMAT11 brochure, website, catalogue and be profiled as part of the festival.

All applications must relate to the festival theme: ‘Right Here, Right Now’ Exposures from the public realm. The theme is deliberately broad allowing practitioners to respond in a number of ways from purely conceptual works through to social documentary and street photography.

Further information on the festival theme is contained within the Application Guidelines.

FORMAT11: EXPOSURE – Submit an application

All applications must be received by 12 midnight (UK GMT) 10th June 2010. Applications received after this time cannot be considered. Only successful applicants will be contacted by the end of June 2010.

KATAPULT + FORMAT

It was Derby’s reputation for Photography that played a significant role as to how and why Katapult was formed and is located in the city today; two of Katapult’s founding director’s Dawn and Anthony came  here to study at the University of Derby back in 1998 due its reputation for Photography degrees.

Katapult have been working with FORMAT International Photography Festival since 2007. Last year, for FORMAT09 – Photocinema, Katapult worked closely with the FORMAT team to develop the  marketing campaign, festival materials and website. We also did significant development work on MOB FORMAT which integrated flickr with a flash gallery within the site which increased  international engagement and participation in the festival.
