Similarly to last year, we will have the opportunity to meet you in person before the start of PhotoIreland at the Photo Fest Ireland trade show. We are delighted to have their support for the second year running, and Helen Burke from the Irish Photo News is to thank. We are sure that you are all as excited about the second year as we are.
In 2010 we received an estimated 45,000 visitors, including record-breaking figures in many of the galleries, and with a tiny budget we achieve media exposure to over 1.5 million people; thanks to the RTE Supporting the Arts Scheme, the Irish Times, Luas, Dublin City Council, and other great organisations that considered PhotoIreland unique and of interest for the Irish audiences.
Supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport, we worked with more than 60 organisations to develop 35 exhibitions in 35 venues, showcasing the work of a total of 250 photographers around the city of Dublin. We also had the kind support of many leading cultural organisations and individuals; public, private and independent. All within our philosophy of developing an event “vibrant, friendly, all – inclusive: a festival for all to enjoy.”
For 2011, we are working on an ambitious programme, and we are looking forward to make it public in early May. For the time being, we will be releasing information at Photo Fest Ireland 2011. So, come by and visit our stand and learn more about this year!
