2011 Festival

September 20, 2010

Call For Format Festival 2011 Projects
Format Festival, 11th – 27th February 2011
Due Date Project Proposals – 1st November 2010

Format is a two week festival of DIY, artist run projects and participatory culture. In 2011, we’ll be operating out of two venues – Format Space at 15 Peel St and Magazine Gallery on Clubhouse Lane.

If you’ve got art, music, film, publications, walking tours, weird stuff, performances, lectures, ideas for workshops or whatever else, and you’d like to expose it to the good people of Adelaide, please send us 1 A4 page at contact@format.net.au including information about your proposed project, what kind of space would best suit it, and your technical requirements.

Label your application “FORMAT 2011 PROPOSAL” and if possible include some relevant images of previous art/projects/whatever you’ve been involved in.

Format is able to provide the venue, basic lighting and equipment, catering and awesome ‘party good times’ crowds. Unfortunately as our budget is as yet unconfirmed, we cannot guarantee you artist fees yet – it’s DIY in the worst sense of the word. We look forward to hearing your ideas!

Want to design Format Festival’s 2011 Poster? Sure you do! Format is holding a diorama-poster competition to choose our 2011 poster image. This is how it works:
1) Anyone can enter. Anyone can vote for their favourite poster.
2) To enter, make and photograph the diorama you’d like to see on the Format Festival poster. It could have anything in it – miniature people, mountains, the ocean, knives, live wolves. For an example of a great diorama see the above image of our Christmas in July Diorama-Poster designed by Stephanie Lyall.
3) Remember to include in your diorama at a reasonable scale the Format logo (available for download here), the dates of the festival (11th – 27th February), and our address (15 Peel St, just off Hindley). We’ll take care of the rest…
4) To enter your diorama, add a comment to the wall of this event and  attach an image of your diorama. Or email your entry to contact@format.net.au
5) The four dioramas with the most *Like*s will be used as the Format Festival 2011 posters. If you don’t have facebook and would like to vote, let us know at contact@format.net.au. The winners will be asked to provide their diorama for professional photographing. ALL dioramas entered in the competition will be featured in an exhibition at the opening night of Format Festival 2011, so hang onto your dioramas!
6) Make sure to press *like* for your favourite dioramas! You are allowed to vote for more than one.
