BPF consistently demonstrates exceptional value for money. Led by volunteers, BPF endeavours to make all its activities self-financing. Public funding makes up only a third of the current BPF budget and pays for freelance consultants essential to delivering our intensive programmes. Help us continue to develop our much-needed programmes by donating here. Every little helps.

BPF is extremely grateful for funding and continued support from Arts Council England, Awards for All and Brighton & Hove City Council and our headline sponsor Metro Imaging Ltd.


Collaboration is at the heart of everything BPF does and we gratefully acknowledge the support, enery and expertise of our partners:

The University of Sussex is a leading research university with a reputation for innovation and inspiration. BPF is proud to be based within their School of Media, Film and Music, one of the top rated departments in the UK. The breadth of offer within the School encompasses the critical and historical studies of media, film, journalism, music and culture together with creative practice across a range of musical forms and the media of photography, film, radio and interactive digital imaging.

Photoworks is an organisation dedicated to enabling participation in photography, the most democratic medium of contemporary visual culture. Photoworks' programme includes commissions, publishing and participation. In collaboration with local, national and international partners, Photoworks connects outstanding artists with audiences and champions talent and ambition.

Produced by Photoworks, Brighton Photo Biennial is the UK's leading curated photography festival and promotes new thinking around photography through a commissioned programme of events and exhibitions.

With over 35 years experience in photographic printing, Metro Imaging has an excellent reputation for working to the highest quality across all of its services. There are an extensive range of skills and techniques on offer, from concept through to final installation. Metro provides a comprehensive in-house solution utilising one-to-one production management by expert technicians, printers and framers.

Metroprint, the online arm to Metro Imaging provides the same products but as a 'do-it-yourself' service. Metroprint is designed for printing, mounting and framing twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

Metro is very much looking forward to partnering with the Brighton Photo Fringe again, by exploring and delivering the highest quality exhibition in an innovative and exciting way.

Legacy Film provides positive representation in film for those of the African and Caribbean diaspora and screens films and events to entertain, excite and interest all.
