16th – 18th October 2014

October’s Theme:

Landscape Photography

 

Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature devoid of human influence, instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, and ambient light. As with most forms of art, the definition of a landscape photograph is broad, and may include urban settings, industrial areas, and nature photography. Notable landscape photographers include Ansel Adams, Fred Judge F.R.P.S. photographer of Judges Postcards,Galen RowellEdward WestonBen Heine and Mark Gray.

8. Update your Booking Form

If you are unable to provide your biography, title & price etc when you send in your Booking Form and make your payment, you can fill in this information on the Update Booking Form 2014 on our website.  We will require this information by 18th September 2014.

ALL IMAGES UPLOADED MUST BE JPEGS HIGH RES 300 dpi.  The naming convention for images is the following format:

YourName_ImageTitle_Price.jpg (e.g. JoeBloggs_TheLondonEye_85.jpg)

Please follow this format or we will reject your image!!

We still require your images even if we are not doing your printing as they need to be placed in the Catalogue.   

9. Biography

Biography: 35 words only. Please write in the third person (e.g Joe Bloggs is an amateur photographer…).

10.  Attendance & business cards

Attendance is not compulsory but we recommend you attend the Private View (along with your guests) and the Click ‘n Clique evening on the Friday evening.  Please feel free to bring business cards and other promotional material to place on our Information Table (any material is left at your own risk)

11.  Pricing & Commission

Pricing your work at the right level is probably one of the hardest things to establish when exhibiting your work.  The rule of thumb is to sell for 2 or 3 times the cost of production.

We are encouraging sales of your work at the Festival because is it better to get the sale there and then as we found that buyers are unlikely to come back and purchase at a later date.  If your image does sell at the early stages of the Festival, we will replace it with a copy of your image.  Please provide this when you hand in your submission (Option 1 only)

We will be taking a 20% commission plus any admin fees involved (i.e. costs via PayPal etc but cash payments on the day will not incur any admin fees).  

If you sell any images as a consequence of the Festival (before or after), we are relying on an honesty policy to receive our 20% commission!

A price list of all exhibited images will be available for the public at the Festival.
