Who should come:

Whether you have a passion for new photography, want to find out about some of the most exciting emerging photographers, or would like the opportunity to meet and network with photographers and industry professionals, this event aims to have something for everyone.

Showing your work

There are two options for showing your book or portfolio. There's an open table on which you can leave your book for others to browse. While there will be Redeye staff on hand, the table is not permanently staffed and so we advise you not to leave books of significant value.

The other option is to be on hand to show people your book or portfolio. We will provide a limited number of tables for this purpose. Spaces at these tables are first come, first served. The doors will open at 10:45.

Bursary announcement

** Following Hothouse, from 19:00 Redeye will announce the winner of the Redeye Printing Bursary with Rob Sara.

Travel and parking

The Studio is about ten minutes' walk from both Piccadilly Station and Victoria Station, and 5 minutes from Piccadilly Gardens bus stops.

All-day parking is £4.50 at nearby Dale Street Car Park (5 mins walk). We advise against on-street parking which has recently increased in price, and in the times it applies; in particular the Pay by Phone option is not reliable and can result in a ticket being issued.


The event is free to attend but you must pre-register. If you find out after registering that you can't attend, please let us know via the "Send Feedback" link below.
