Festival Guide FAQ

Plan your photo-related event or exhibition and join ACP's 2018 Photography Festival. Be a part of the incredible transformation that takes place each October when Atlanta is filled with photography!

Participants organize their own photo events or exhibitions. Some portion of your event must occur in October. We expect printed Festival Guides to be available in early September. We will cease online promotion of the festival after Nov 6th.

Online-only listings are now available, through Sept. 14.

How to Participate:
Plan your event (artists / venues).

Benefits of participating in ACP 2018 include:

  • Extensive publicity and promotion of your event, with a regional marketing campaign
  • Photographers benefit from increased exposure
  • Listings are actively seen by tens of thousands of people through the printed, online guides, and iPhone app
  • Participation entitles your events and news to be promoted year round on ACP Now!

Every listing will have an image. The best way to draw attention to your event in a photography festival is to include an image that you have permission to publish. If you cannot select an image to use, please consider a logo, or a photo of the interior of the venue.

In 2018, ACP will have an enhanced online Festival Guide. The Festival Guide will include tags again, be Google-friendly, and it will again be available as an iPhone app & a downloadable PDF. In 2018, we're planning to introduce an Android app, as well! As always, each listing will have its own page, with a unique link and location.

Get Started:
  • Gather your event, artist & venue info. Descriptions for your listing in the printed Festival Guide are limited to 12 words; 250 words for the web listing.
  • Printed guides are targeted for distribution starting on Sept 5th. ACP recommends that your Main Event occur between late-September and October 31st.
  • You'll need a large jpg that you have permission to publish, between 1000 and 3000 pixels on its longest side.
