Format Exposure Prize
The 6th edition of FORMAT International Photography Festival opened on the 8th March 2013. GRAIN worked in partnership to enable a new photography prize, in the form of a commission prize, at FORMAT EXPOSURE.
The photographer was selected from the work exhibited by Louise Clements, Artistic Director of QUAD and FORMAT, Brian Griffin, world renowned photographer and patron of FORMAT and Pete James, Curator of Photographs, Library of Birmingham.
The commission prize was awarded to Andreas Meichsner. Meichsner has been commissioned to make a new body of work, during summer 2013. A set of prints resulting from the commission will then be added to the nationally and internationally significant photography collection at the new Library of Birmingham.
