Redeye Opportunity

After a few editions on the road, Redeye is very pleased to bring Hothouse back to Manchester this June. Hothouse will take place on Saturday 18th June at thestudio in HIVE Manchester. This day of new photography is a showcase of creative talent and a hive of photographic activity and information.

What is Hothouse?

Hothouse is an event with short presentations from photographers about their recent work and projects. If you have a project or body of work you would like to talk about, whether it’s complete or a work in progress, we would love to hear from you. For details on how to apply please see further information below.

In addition to the presentations there will also be the opportunity to look through these and other photographic portfolios, and photography books.

Applications for presentations

We are seeking photographers who can give short, ten to fifteen minute presentations about their work. These can either be a single project, series or connected body of work, and the slots are open to photographers from all fields – fine art, photojournalism, landscape, portrait, documentary, social, commercial, experimental – anything!

If you are interested in presenting your work, please send up to 12 jpeg images (no bigger than 5MB in total), along with a few sentences about yourself and your work, to by Saturday 30th April at 9am.

Please clearly mark on your application you are applying for MANCHESTER Hothouse.

We aim to include as many presentations as we can, and will let you know if you have been successful by 11th May.

Showing your book or portfolio

There are two options for showing your book or portfolio. There’s an open table on which you can leave your published or self-published book for others to browse. While there will be Redeye staff nearby, the table is not permanently staffed and so we advise you not to leave unique books or anything of significant value. The other option is to be on hand to talk to visitors about your book or portfolio. We will provide a limited number of tables for this purpose. Spaces at these tables are first come, first served. If you would like to bring a portfolio, please email Charlie Booth at ahead of the day.

Venue and Timing

Hothouse Manchester will take place from 11:00-17:00 on the 18th June 2016 at thestudio in HIVE on Lever Street, Manchester. For more information on the festival or on how to get to HIVE please visit their website here. You are welcome to come for the whole afternoon or drop in at any time. The full programme of talks will be announced by 14th May 2016.
