Format International Photography Festival | Nottingham Photographers' Hub

Format International Photography Festival

The Format International Photography Festival was founded by Louise Clements and Mike Brown in 2004 and its last run in 2011 saw more than 100,000 people visit the festival. The impressive launch of FORMAT last Thursday brought huge crowds into Derby city centre, with many people braving the rain at Cathedral Green to watch a sensory performance by Elemental Force at The Silk Mill. The evening marked the official launch of the exhibitions in various venues across the city including QUAD, Derby Museum and Art Gallery, Déda, St Werburgh’s Chapel, Silk Mill, Artsmith, Banks Mill, Westfield, Artcore, and the New Art Exchange.

The Festival consists of two parts, Focus bringing work from nearly 30 of the worlds best photographers to the East Midlands, and Exposure, showing work from nearly 70 photographers from across the globe who responded to Format’s request for an open submission. Most of the work on display loosely follows the theme of the Festival – Work. Alongside the exhibitions are a number of different workshops, talks and events. One of the festival highlights is Brian Griffin’s
