About us

Brighton Photo Fringe is a volunteer-led, collaborative platform providing essential professional development opportunities and peer-support for emerging lens-based artists.

Committed to equality and diversity, BPF's year-round programme fosters ambition, innovation and self-reliance in artists; nurtures confidence and creativity in participants; and inspires audiences with extraordinary images in unexpected places.

BPF offers focused support of early-career artists, students and amateurs. Renowned for promoting outstanding new talent, BPF connects this nascent talent to new audiences, working with artist-led initiatives and festivals around the country.
