Bridgeman Images will be at fotofringe on 23 rd April at table AGF 15 on the Art Gallery Foyer level. fotofringe has established itself as the essential annual gathering of stock libraries and researchers in central London near Kings Cross.

They will be unveiling the new edition of the Bridgeman Times, their newspaper, as well as other promotional material with information about Bridgeman Footage, Bridgeman Studio and their history and culture collections.

They recently acquired the Rue des Archives library, an exceptional French archive which covers everything from Lascaux cave paintings to celebrities and complements their existing material.

Annabel O’Connor Fenton, Marketing Manager, says, “We will have iPads fired up with presentations so we can showcase our new collections, artists, and give search tips on using our website. We are looking forward to seeing our existing clients and meeting new ones.”

An exciting new project is their Creative Studio competition to source new talent for their contemporary art platform. The theme is the Great Outdoors so they hope to get lots of interest from artists and graphic designers. Prizes include a licensing deal with CultureLabel, a commission for the Wilderness Festival and professional representation. More information here.

The first 20 people to go to their stand will receive a Bridgeman Studio mug.

CEO Victoria Bridgeman says, “We love coming to fotofringe because it’s fun and informal and a chance to meet people face to face and find out what they need now or might in the future.
