FORMAT International Photography Festival 2017
Take part in FORMAT 2017. Send us your exhibition proposals & ideas
FORMAT is the UK’s largest and longest running international festival of photography. For the 2017 edition of FORMAT we are looking for submissions that explore the theme of HABITAT through varied narratives and imagery that document the worlds around us. We hope that through the theme you will share with us the experiences and stories that coalesce as we negotiate our complex existence, including the flora, fauna, landscapes and the lives within.
Rapid changes in the environment, industry, technology, wars, migration and climate are accelerating at such unprecedented rates that the human impact on the Earth has pushed us into a new cultural geological epoch or era known as the Anthropocene. With tangible impacts of these changes being recorded in the atmosphere, lands, plants, oceans, humanity and wildlife, we are interested in the effect, solutions and conditions of this state that we are in, on micro and macro levels worldwide.
We are open to see a wide range of projects exploring HABITAT, which will look broadly at landscape, environment, mobility, migrations, digital worlds, ideas of home and displacement, conflict and regeneration and all the spaces that we live in including work that considers our short or long term impact on the world locally and internationally.
We are looking for a wide variety of works for presentation in the festival, from long term researched documentary, multimedia, archive, installation, interventions, publications, fictions, interactive, performance, participatory, mobile, narrative and all kinds of conceptual works all rooted in photography in diverse ways. We want you to challenge and respond to the theme in as many inventive ways as you can imagine.
For the FORMAT17 Open Call we are proud to be working in partnership with LensCulture, one of the world’s largest online destinations for contemporary photography. You are invited to use LensCulture’s submission platform to apply for the FORMAT17 Open Call to be eligible to exhibit your work at FORMAT in 2017 and receive a free Submission Review of your work from LensCulture’s team of over 100 industry professionals.
