An extravaganza of photography comes to the city for 2023 – don’t miss out!
Calling all photo enthusiasts, videographers and content creators! Photo Video 24 – a huge festival of imaging – is hitting Cambridge this summer for 24 hours of photo- and video-related fun: and you can be part of it!
Running 3-4 June, the event will feature workshops, competitions, photo walks and talks, giving attendees a chance to hone their skills, get expert feedback, try new equipment and pick up fresh techniques. It’s hosted by BRIGHT, publishers of Cambridge Edition and leading imaging titles such as Photography News, Pro Moviemaker and Definition, and has been taking place annually in London for a decade. This year sees the festival move outside the capital for the first time, bringing a host of activities to the city including sunrise photo walks, a climb to the top of St Mary’s for a bird’s eye view of the city, and a street photography session with Mark Box (aka @humanofcambridge).
The event base will be the Graduate hotel in the heart of the city centre, which will be a hive of activity throughout the 24 hours. Event sponsor MPB will host a series of sessions, and you’ll have the chance to get your kit valued or borrow equipment to take out with you on the streets. Also at the hotel, you ca join portrait classes and workshops to help you to get to grips with video, plus take advantage of feedback sessions with the knowledgeable Photography News team.
There will be contests for the best pictures and videos taken during the event too, plus an hourly photo challenge and a very special treasure hunt with prizes donated by MPB.
If you’re keen to get involved, registration opens in April – keep an eye on photographynews.co.uk for confirmation. All walks and events will be bookable at the point of registration. Some events will be paid for, but many are free, so you don’t have to reach into your pocket if you don’t want to. And, of course, you don’t even have to book any events, you can simply head along, get involved and enjoy getting creative for 24 hours! Everyone who joins in will get a Photo Video 24 passport with tips, guides and challenges (including prizes!), and if you survive the full 24 hours, you’ll get a memento to remember your day.
