FORMAT International Photography Festival 2015



The seventh edition of FORMAT Festival takes place between 13th March and 12th April 2015


FORMAT: Evidence will feature over 200 photographers, guest curators, interactive installations and diverse events, making the historic city of Derby once again the place to discover new and innovative photographic and lens based projects from around the world.


FORMAT is the UK’s most significant biennale of photography taking place throughout Derby and curated around the theme of EVIDENCE.  Every two minutes, we take as many photos as the entirety of humanity took during the 1800s. On a daily basis, we use photography to record our lives, routines, friends and encounters. Millions of seemingly insignificant moments are recorded and shared online, creating inconclusive portraits of individuals, places and events. Through a selection of the best of international photography in a diverse programme of exhibitions and events FORMAT will make sense of our complex world and its connection to EVIDENCE and photography, in a multitude of inspiring ways.


FORMAT is organised by QUAD and the University of Derby
