Bristol Festival of Photography 2014 is open for registration!
The third Bristol Festival of Photography will take place from 1st to 31st May 2014. If you would like your exhibition or a group exhibition to be included in the festival, and promoted as part of the festival, you need to register your exhibition with BFOP. The festival is open to all photography based exhibitions so long as they are held in Bristol during May, whether in galleries, cafés, community centres or other alternative spaces.
Registration is now open; the submission deadline is Monday March 31st. To register you need to provide us with full details of the exhibition, including title, full address of venue with which the exhibition is confirmed / booked, names of exhibiting photographers or group and some images for press. Registration costs £15.
Announcement on the future of Bristol Festival of Photography
We are pleased to announce that Bristol Festival of Photography will be carrying on! A fresh team of volunteers will be taking the reins to bring BFOP to you in May 2014. If you are interested in either volunteering with the festival, or taking part as an exhibitor, venue or event organiser then please email email@example.com for further details. You can also join our Facebook page for updates, or check back to this website regularly.
Bristol Festival of Photography started as an idea in 2009 and became a reality in 2010. Two years later the second BFOP extended the success of the first festival with stunning exhibitions, fun events and fabulous speakers – check it out here.
We have enjoyed BFOP and would like to thank all of the individuals and organisations that help to make both festivals successful. However other commitments have forced us to face the reality that we are no longer able to put the time and energy into the festival, and run another in 2014 – it is time to move on and let others take over the running of BFOP.
It has been fun! Thanks for everything.
Philip Searle (Festival Director) and Sarah Macfarlane (Festival Co-ordinator)
