Unveil'd Photo Festival 2016 by Matthew Broadhead

In collaboration with Unveil'd, we recently called out for a UK based photography graduate to report on this years photo festival. We're excited to announce that University of Brighton 2016 graduate, Matthew Broadhead, was our stand out graduate and has therefore been selected to document his time in Exeter!


Matthew was the perfect selection as he has some work in the Unveil'd Open exhibition so we're looking forward to his feedback on being part of the festival as well as a visitor to many other events taking place over the weekend.

Festival Report Call Out! Unveil’d Photo Festival. 20th - 23rd October, Exeter.

Utilising this to effect the aim of using diverse spaces to share photography with a wider audience, engaging communities and the public.

This October, Unveil'd will host a multi-location photography festival throughout the city of Exeter featuring exhibitions, talks, workshops, film screenings, a photobook fair and music.

Together with Unveil'd, we're calling out for an enthusiastic, dedicated, and dependable UK based photography graduate to report on the festival in October. The team have very generously given us one free ticket to assign to the chosen reporter, giving them access to all events taking place within the festival. The Festival Report will need to consist of words documenting the visit and lots of images to coincide. An Instagram Takeover is also an option. The completed blog post will then be cross promoted by both ourselves and Unveil'd once live.
