R E P O R T A G E F E S T I V A L 2 0 13!
The Creative team at Reportage has been quiet for the last month or so, as meetings and programming have been underway… As the accumulation of exciting content for the Festival has increased and the overall planning grown, it became a matter of debate to decide if the Festival would go ahead for the end of year 2012 or that we would push it forward to the beginning of 2013 to lay room to include all that we are programming for its content.
As of last week it was decided; The Reportage Festival will no longer be held in 2012… we have confirmed dates for March 2013 and we can safely say that it will be worth the wait… we have a selection of the world’s most prominent photographers presenting at the festival for 2013 as well as some amazing headlining exhibitions. We will also be announcing soon a new project related to Reportage submissions which will give emerging documentary photographers the opportunity to be involved in the festival and recommended for their outstanding work.
As of in the past, The 2013 Reportage Festival will be conducting various masterclasses throughout the festival period with world renowned photographers… Just wait until we announce who will be onboard for this year!
Other masterclasses will be initiated also that relate to the art of narration in documentary photography and the development of master photographers.
Reportage visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and visit talks with special guest photographers and documentary focused industry people that will be in Australia for the duration of the festival.
For the first time Reportage 2013 will see the collaboration of renowned International Photography Festivals with the Sydney based festival, leading to an air of celebration and festivity not limited to Australia but shared on an International level,
And of course not to forget… the two nights of projections, highlighting the outstanding documentary work of International and Australian photographers…
We at Reportage are very excited about the next festival and are looking forward, over the course of the following months, to begin releasing in detail the outlined content for the 2013 event.
Stay tuned to our blog and our Facebook page for further announcements; we will also be sending out a newsletter soon outlining the 2013 event; those not subscribed to our newsletter can do so via the website.
We will be in touch soon!
