FORMAT21 Internship Opportunities

FORMAT International Photography Festival is based in Derby UK and is the UK’s leading international contemporary festival of photography and lens based media. It will launch on 11th March 2021 and runs from 12th March – 11th April (TBC) 2021.

In these unprecedented circumstances, FORMAT21 will include an ambitious programme of both online and real world exhibitions, events, talks and portfolio reviews, working with over 300 international photographers, curators and industry professionals

This year we are offering a mix of online and real world Internship opportunities to experience and be part of delivering an internationally prestigious arts festival.

The FORMAT team is small, and you will play a key role in assisting with the planning, marketing, organising and hosting of FORMAT21. FORMAT will provide training, support and a reference to help your future career.

To help realise FORMAT21 we are looking for dedicated and hardworking interns to work as part of the FORMAT team to help us organise and deliver the festival. Previous volunteers, who have excelled in their roles by showing passion and dedication, have been employed by QUAD, FORMAT, and many other creative organisations.
