ACP 2017 Festival Guide Availability

September 11th, 2017

ACP Festival Guides are currently available at these three locations (and many more!) Irma may play a role in whether or not guides are available until Wednesday, but on Wednesday we'll be able to restock these locations. Which is to say, if any of these locations are out of stock, give us a call at the office (404.634.8664), and we can give you a stack, or a box (until ours run out).

Please know that the printed ACP Festival Guides can contain information that's out-of-date, and for best results, visit the ACP Festival Guide for the most up-to-date info, as some event listings have changed, and there are additional online-only listings as well. Thanks!

ACP 2017 Festival Guide (PDF) & Online-Only Listings

August 24th, 2017

While our online ACP 2017 Festival Guide will be the definitive up-to-date reflection of the Festival, a PDF is available of the printed Festival Guide, which will arrive at the end of the month. Happy to have Marilyn Minter's "Torrent" grace the cover this year. Come see her ACP Lecture Series talk at the Woodruff Arts Center, Rich Theater, on October 12th!

If you missed the printed Festival Guide deadline this spring, and would still like to have an event or exhibition in the Festival, please sign-up before Sept. 8th, so we can include you in the online Festival Guide, the forthcoming iPhone app, and all of our promotions. Sign-up is here: http://festivalguide2017.acpinfo.org/app

Thanks!

ACP Festival Guides & Getting Ready for 2017!

April 13th, 2017
There's no time like the present to think about how you want to participate in ACP 2017!

If you're planning an exhibition for later this year, taking a look at ACP Festival Guides from past years can be a big help. There are lists of venues you can contact, and generally, they offer a great way to understand the scale and scope of what it means for Atlanta to Celebrate Photography!

Here are the last few years of Festival Guides, in PDF form. Have a look - we hope they inspire you to participate in 2017. We'll be open for submitting your listing to the ACP Festival Guide in May, and the deadline will be in June.

Cherie Truesdell attended ONE HUNDRED events & exhibitions in ACP 2016

February 27th, 2017
Last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Cherie Truesdell, who attended ONE HUNDRED events & exhibitions during ACP 2016. It's not just remarkable, it's nearly unbelievable!

(We didn't ask how many miles she put on her car...)

Cherie visited ACP venues across the Atlanta-metro area (plus Athens, Columbus, Zebulon, and beyond!) and along the way she kept track of everything in her dog-eared Festival Guide. If you're a completist, and you want to see as many photo-related events as possible, we'll be sharing Cheri's tips with you later in the year, but here's a quick few:

"Bring the Festival Guide with you, call ahead as much as possible, and bring snacks!"
A few more quotes about some of Cheri's favorite events:

"One of the really fun events was #weloveatl - everyone there was very fabulous and young and cool. Such a neat venue, with their truck and Lonnie Holley's sculpture next door.

And Marianne Mitchell's exhibition was so cool! It was a creepy, poetic exhibition and was fun and fantastic. I was really inspired.

The Portfolio Walk is so great, because the people are there and they'll tell you all about their work, and they're passionate about it, and people come in from New York and California, and some are local students."
We'll be back in touch with a few of Cheri's tips for enjoying #acpfest later this year.

Thank you, Cheri!

The #acpfest iPhone app is here!

We're excited to launch the ACP 2016 iPhone app today, and are eager to hear how it works for you. You can save events to your calendar, share them across your social networks, and browse by date, by artist, by image, by type, and by map to stay up-to-date with the nearly 150 photography events and exhibitions taking place in October (and some now!)

Huge thanks to our development partners at MotionMobs, who brought this app to life and have been a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended! ; )

2016 ACP Festival Guide PDF

September 1st, 2016
ACP16_FestivalGuide_Thumb_900w

While we prepare to launch the online ACP Festival Guide, we wanted you to have the ACP 2016 Festival Guide as a PDF. Keep in mind, this version is exactly as printed - and because our print deadlines are early in the summer, a few dates and times have shifted around since then.

As you plan on attending events, it's always best to call ahead, or even better, visit the ACP 2016 Festival Guide online for all the latest info. (It's not launched yet, but will soon, we promise!) And did we mention the iPhone app? It's on its way, too!

5 Days Left to Participate in ACP 2016

June 25th, 2016
20160527_Kelly_Kristin_Jones_900w

If you're an artist or venue interested in participating in ACP 2016 this October, you have 5 days left to list your event or exhibition in the ACP Festival Guide.

Start your ACP Festival Guide listing today!

(The deadline for participating in ACP 2016 is June 30th.)

Here are the details:
Festival Guide Intro (includes pricing)
Participate as a Venue
Participate as an Artist

To list your event, you'll need a description of your event, addresses, dates & times associated with your venue, and a 1000 pixel-wide JPG for both your web and print listing. The base listing price is unchanged this year ($160) and remains a great value for reaching the photo-loving audience of the Southeast.

Your listing will be printed in 12,000 Festival Guides and distributed across the Atlanta-metro area, plus it will be available on our dedicated website for the festival, and also in our iPhone app - all of which will be marketed nationally!

As a photographer, you might wonder what it would be like to have your work seen rather than take-up space on your hard drive or portfolio box. As a retail shop, corporation or gallery, you might want to activate your walls with great photography and host an event. The Festival is a great way to get involved and join photography's month-long transformation of Atlanta into a coordinated cultural experience.
