fotofringer press release – 10 December, 2019

fotofringe London has announced the 10th Anniversary show date as Thursday 23 April 2020, with the event now live for visitor booking.

fotofringe London brings together creatives and image buyers in book publishing, digital marketing, TV, documentary video and film production, advertising, branding, content marketing, merchandising, newspapers and magazines, ready to network, meet and make deals with the best image providers and teams in the world.

Visitors can register here.

“Adventurous times call for adventurous spirits and greater collaboration,” says Flora Smith, creator of fotofringe London, and Managing Partner of TopFoto. “With the torrent of imagery today, direct personal exchanges, connection, learning and internationalism – the key elements of fotofringe – bring tangible benefits to image hunters, their employers and their customers.”

Now firmly established as the singlemost significant networking event for image professionals, fotofringe London is supported and sponsored by Capture, AIM Risk Services, and Bikinilists.

BAPLA (the British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies) will continue its support of fotofringe in 2020, by hosting a series of workshop-style industry masterclasses.

The workshops offer an opportunity to develop professional knowledge, learning from industry insiders, and to share questions and expertise with peers.

Benefit from 3 industry masterclasses courtesy of BAPLA:

#1 Fair dealing versus fair use: In the first masterclass, Anna Skurczynska, Founder Director of Open Plan Law, uses practical examples to explain why we apply the principle of fair dealing in the UK, rather than the USA fair use regime which is often more contentious.

#2 Skills in contemporary media: industry experts lead discussion on sourcing video and social media content.

#3 Let’s talk about rights: a dialogue in the round on publishing rights, building understanding between agencies and publishers by discussing key contractual issues such as model releases.

Visitors and exhibitors can follow BAPLA (@baplaUK or #BAPLAFOCUS) to be the first to know when the workshops are available to book. Follow Fotofringe London (@fringeflow or #fotofringelive) to get all event updates and special offers as they happen.

“Fotofringe is always a friendly as well as informative affair” says Giulia Hetherington, Picture Research Manager, Octopus Publishing. “It’s a great opportunity to put faces to names and depending on what projects visitors are working on, we usually want to see different people each visit!”
