Open Programme - PhotoIreland Festival 2016

Open Programme

Participate in the Open Programme 2016 to promote personal or collective projects: it is the ideal arena to experiment with event and exhibition making.


The Open Programme 2016 offers artists, photographers, curators and organisations the opportunity to put forward events and join the festival celebrations. We welcome submissions of events relating to Photography and contemporary image culture, from national and international individuals and organisations, looking to develop their own events in Dublin during the month of July. The events could be exhibitions, installations, performances, films, shorts, videos, talks, workshops… the limit is your imagination! All participants will be featured in the festival catalogue and website, and will receive festival catalogues to distribute during the event.


If you are having trouble finding an ideal venue for your show, we encourage you to look at the maps in the previous editions of the festival and consider getting in contact with the venues listed in the Open Programme. Also, you can research the Visual Artists website to find possible venues.




Submissions are open now.
To submit, email a brief description of your proposed event or exhibition and the venue where the event will be held to with OPEN PROGRAMME as the subject.
Please, note: you must have secured a venue for your event or exhibition before you submit.
You can include as many links and low resolution images you need to support your proposal. Once your submission is deemed ok, you will receive a submission form to complete the process.
There is a contribution fee of €125 towards the marketing materials, payable by bank transfer only.
Deadline: midnight 8th May. No extensions or exceptions possible.


Should you have any further questions, please contact or use the online contact form.
