London Photo Festival poised for lift-off

September 16, 2011

Photography enthusiasts and ‘semi-professionals’ will have the chance to showcase and sell their work at the inaugural London Photo Festival which takes place from 27-29 October.

The event is due to feature talks and is billed as an opportunity for amateurs to network and ?gain valuable professional feedback?.

Organisers include Sal Shuel who is an expert in photographic copyright issues.

The London Photo Festival will be open to the public on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 October (10am-7pm) and entry will be free.

It will take place in The Crypt, at St George the Martyr church, opposite Borough underground station (near London Bridge).

It costs £85 to exhibit at the event (£75 if payment received by 30 September), say organisers who hope the show will become an annual fixture.

Prizes will be awarded in a ?Best in Show? competition and the public will get the chance to vote for their top shots in an ?f/factor? competition.

A private view is scheduled to take place on the evening of Thursday 27 October.
