Photo Fringe’s biennial open-platform photography festival will return throughout October 2024 with launch events from Friday 4 October.

Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, our eleventh edition will fill Brighton and beyond with exhibitions and events celebrating photography and collaboration.

Alongside self-curated shows in galleries, cafés and pop-ups, the city will also see a new seafront show selected from open call and our ever-popular collectives hub at Phoenix Art Space.

As usual Photo Fringe will also reach along the coast to Worthing and this year, for the first time, to Portsmouth where we’ll be working with Aspex and Pompey Darkroom to deliver a new collaborative programme.

Resulting from our recent co-commission with The Gaia Foundation, we’ll be presenting Arpita Shah's work in London in an exciting new partnership with Build Hollywood, and also in Brighton at ONCA.

With help from Brighton & Hove City Council’s Shared Prosperity Fund, East Brighton Trust, and Chalk Cliff Trust, we’ll connect the Gaia Foundation’s We Feed The UK project to the Moulsecoomb Forest Garden.

We’re thrilled our friends at Photoworks will be presenting programmes in Brighton again with a city-centre, outdoor exhibition and a focused weekend of events 24-27 October, including some in partnership with Photo Fringe.

Interested in showing your work or staging an event? Come join in! Photo Fringe is open to all and everyone's welcome. Don’t forget, with our online exhibition options you can exhibit from anywhere.
