Call for Paper on Evidence. Format Festival Conference. Deadline: Feb. 28, 2015

CALL FOR PAPERS

FORMAT International Photography Festival is pleased to invite submissions to its interdisciplinary one day conference, organised in partnership with the Digital and Material Arts Research Centre, University of Derby.

The festival conference will be held at QUAD, on the 10th April 2015, during the closing weekend of FORMAT15 and will provide an opportunity to explore and interrogate the festival theme of evidence, in relation to work using film, photography and the moving image.

Evidence is the mainstay of how we decide what is and is not true and since its invention in the 19th century, photography has been crucial to the collection, recording and display of evidence. Today, millions of seemingly insignificant moments are captured on cameras, mobile phones and tablets, generating a trail of our everyday lives and proof of our existence.

The FORMAT15 conference seeks proposals that can offer an interpretation of the importance of evidence and its relationship to ideas of authenticity, photojournalism and the political. Selected presentations will be considered for a post conference publication.

Proposals in the form of maximum 300 word abstracts on the following themes can be submitted in three categories:
Single Presentation:10 minute talk
Group Session:15 minute presentation per speaker as part of a group panel discussion
Full paper: max. 45 minute presentation
Please send submissions via email to Professor Chris White (c.white@derby.ac.uk)

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 28th FEBRUARY 2015

Selected speakers will be given free access to the full day of talks and presentations.

Please visit the festival website: www.formatfestival.com whats-on for information about tickets and booking details. A full list of speakers will be published on the festival website.
