PHOTO SUBMISSIONS – SlideLuck calls for submissions for closing evening at FORMAT13 International Photography Festival


Slideluck London (formerly Slideluck Potshow) is calling for photographic bodies of work and multimedia submissions in two categories:

FACTORY AND MASS PRODUCTION. For possible interpretations of this theme.

OPEN THEME. Send in your best work on any subject. For inspiration you can view Slideluck’s previously featured artists.

The slide show will be presented as two separate collections, both of which will be chosen by guest curator Monica Allende (Photo Editor of The Sunday Times Magazine and founder of the pioneering Spectrum section) and will take place on the closing night of FORMAT International Photography Festival in Derby on Saturday 6 April starting at 6pm.

The evening will be art directed by Louise Clements (Artistic Director of FORMAT13) and Maria Teresa Salvati (Director of Slideluck London) at the Chocolate Factory. There will also be a potluck-style dinner followed by the slideshows curated by Monica Allende.

SLIDELUCK (formerly Slideluck Potshow) is an international non-profit arts organization that aims to build and strengthen community around photography and food. It functions as a platform for exposing photographers, curators, collectors, and editors to new work, in a creative non-commercial environment.

The event will celebrate the conclusion of the FORMAT FESTIVAL and will bring together members of the photography, art and media communities for an evening of eating, drinking, visual storytelling and music featuring a new performance by The Developer.


On the night of the show, Monica Allende will announce one outstanding work of her choice, to be featured in the Spectrum section of The Sunday Times Magazine.

Blurb will be supporting the event, awarding each applicant a £30 voucher and selecting the best photographic story of the evening rewarding this photographer with a £350 Gift Card to spend at

GUP Magazine will also select a few series, providing a high-quality stage and broad audience (online and/or in print) for the artists/photographers.

A 15% discount on any Viewbook plan. The discount will be applied on a first subscription payment.

Submit your work for a chance to be shown at Slideluck London / FORMAT!

There is a £10 fee per submission fee.
