Metro Supports FORMAT17 Portfolio Reviews

24 February 2017
Metro is once again thrilled to be supporting FORMAT17 Portfolio Reviews taking place at the upcoming FORMAT Festival in March.  The review hosts the UK’s largest gathering of professional photography experts offering help and advice to over 80 Photographers.  Aimed at committed photographers with a developed and serious approach to their work including recent graduates the reviews offer a unique opportunity to have work critiqued from a selection of almost 50 industry experts including Art Directors, Picture Editors, Curators, Photographers and gallery owners.

Along with a host of other prizes Metro is providing The Metro Imaging Award which is open to everyone booked at the Review and judged by the reviewers or chosen judges.  Our prize consists of x1 hour consultation with one of our Master Printers, learning about profiling and preparation of work for a fine art finish.  The winner will have the opportunity to discuss the desired finish for their prints and receive set of 12 x 12”x8” C-type Matt/gloss portfolio prints, produced after the session.

Established in 2004 FORMAT Festival is now one of the UK's leading international contemporary festivals of photography and related media. Taking place biennially FORMAT organises a year round programme of international commissions, open calls, residencies, conferences and collaborations in the UK and Internationally - the 2015 festival welcomed over 100,000 visitors from all over the world.

Since its inception each major festival adopts a core theme around which it is curated together with the core structure.  This year's festival theme is ‘Habitat’ through varied narratives and imagery that document the worlds around us. We will share the experiences and stories that coalesce as we negotiate our complex existence, including the flora, fauna, landscapes and the lives within.
FORMAT 17 takes place in various locations around Derby between 24th March – 23rd April 2017
