Hey friends,

we’re excited to introduce you to a special project today: The Press. We need YOUR photos to be part of an interactive photo exhibition that’s going to be presented at the prestigious FORMAT Photography Festival in Derby, UK.

What is The Press?

The Press is the world’s first mobile photo printing press. All photographs submitted to The Press will be printed in the Chocolate Factory exhibition space at FORMAT Festival. The prints will then be cut up and handed over to gallery visitors who will curate together a visual collage of the dedicated topics over the month-long festival.

Here’s a sneak peek at the three exhibition topics.  We will officially be launching the first one early next week…

1. The Press – Work
2. The Press – Treasure (TBA)
3. The Press – Trash (TBA)

Over the festival, a judging panel will select one photograph that best represents each topic.  The three winning photographs will be printed as large format posters and shown in the exhibition space.
