One of the UK's leading international contemporary festivals of photography and related media. Format organises a year round programme of international commissions, open calls, residencies, conferences and collaborations in the UK and Internationally. 

The 2017 edition of Format will explore the theme of Habitat through varied narratives and imagery that document the worlds around us. They will share the experiences and stories that coalesce as we negotiate our complex existence, including the flora, fauna, landscapes and the lives within.

Habitat will look broadly at landscape, environment, mobility, migrations, digital worlds, ideas of home and displacement, conflict and regeneration and all the spaces that we live in including work that considers our short or long term impact on the world locally and internationally.
