Metro is delighted to be providing a portfolio print prize at FORMAT Festival Portfolio Reviews; the biggest Portfolio Review in the UK, featuring over 25 carefully selected international experts from the photography industry.
The reviews are aimed at committed photographers and recent graduates with a developed and serious approach to their work and will take place for one day later this month in conjunction with the National Photography Symposium, presented by Redeye, as part of FORMAT International Photography Festival’s off-year programme which features exhibitions, talks and presentations around the QUAD in Derby.
Prizes will be awarded at the Portfolio Review Awards in the evening of the 22nd after the Portfolio Walk – an opportunity for the public to meet and see the works of over 60 artists who are participating in the Portfolio Reviews - in which VIP guests and reviewers will informally judge and select the winners.
We will be awarding the Metro Imaging Prize of a full one-hour consultation with one of our Master Printers. The winner will have the opportunity to work on their chosen files, learn about profiling and preparation for a fine art finish to their printed work and discuss and work with the printer to achieve the final desired effect. A set of twelve 12”x 8” C Type prints
will be produced after the session.
