Feature your event in the CANON Open Programme 2013

By 02/03/2013March 31st, 2013News

Last year, 50 projects were part of the OPEN programme. The photographers, galleries, and studios involved benefited from the publicity received via our marketing in print, radio, television, online and in the social media. It represents a great opportunity to promote personal and collective projects, and the ideal arena to experiment with exhibition making.

The CANON Open Programme 2013 offers artists, photographers, curators and organisations the chance to put forward events outside the festival theme.

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, Cork and Limerick during the month of July. The events could be exhibitions, installations, performances, films, shorts, videos, talks, workshops, and others.

All participants will be featured in the Festival Catalogue and on the PhotoIreland Festival website, and will receive festival catalogues to distribute during the event.

Who should submit

The CANON Open Programme 2013 is open to all individuals and organisations worldwide, looking to develop their own events in Cork, Dublin and Limerick. Please, make sure you read the guidelines.


5pm Friday 26th April 2013
