The Independent Photography Festival is the annual celebration of Independent Photography, its application, and practice.
An initiative of Hard Workers Club, and produced alongside Smalltime Projects and The Thousands Melbourne,
the IPF2013 program will follow on from the inaugural event, comprised
of a series of exhibition openings featuring Australian Photographers,
the IPF Photo Book & Zine Fair, and the IPF Photo Prize - the
largest internationally open, prints-based photography exhibition and
competition in Australia, utilising the best of what Melbourne has to
offer as host for these events.
Whilst we’re eternally grateful to The Internet for the infinite
platform it gives us to connect, collaborate, and communicate as
creatives, we feel that for too long an altogether analogue, manual, and
physical practice has seen the best products of its prolificacy
confined to blogs, dedicated websites, and the internet.
IPF hopes to bring together the living, breathing artists and
creatives that form the lifeblood of our diverse and inclusive
discipline to reclaim photography for the hard-working, autonomous,
passionate, and progressive photographers, creating for the love of
shooting and shooting for the love of creating.
