Live Auction

Give to BPF14 and expand your collection

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO CAME ON SATURDAY 1ST AND CELEBRATED THE SUCCESS OF THIS YEAR'S BRIGHTON PHOTO FRINGE.

WE RAISED AN ASTONISHING £1800 WITH OUR LIVE AUCTION. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DONATED AND EVERYONE WHO MADE A PURCHASE. WATCH OUT FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THE REMAINING LOTS. THERE ARE STILL A FEW BARGAINS TO BE HAD!


LIVE auction event at our Closing Party at Vantage Point: Collectives Hub on Saturday 1 November from 6pm

Brighton Photo Fringe is a much loved and valued organisation, and we need your help to ensure its future. We receive a small amount of public funding but we need to match this with income we generate ourselves. This year we need to raise £2000.

Following last years successful online fundraising auction we are inviting you all to donate a print or a book to be auctioned and to come and buy something for your collection.

You could donate a print from the series you are showing during BPF14, or something that has not been seen before. It may be the perfect opportunity to declutter your book collection to make room for that much longed for
photobook. Prints can be of any size, and, if you wish, may be mounted and/or framed. Ideally donations should be made by the 11 October.

All the art works will form a growing display at Vantage Point during BPF14, from 4 October to 2 November. Visitors will have plenty of time to see the lots and choose which one they'd like to win in the bid. Guide prices will be displayed. Bidders will be able to pre-bid by emailing fringeauctions@gmail.com. Gordon MacDonald of GOST Books will be our auctioneer for the event.

BPF provides a platform that enables everybody to engage with, exhibit and enjoy photography. Over the past decade BPF has created one of the largest photographic festivals in the UK. It exists because you all take part, as artists, participants and audience members.

Thank you for your support.

How to donate

To donate a book or print to the auction please email Jo Renshaw on fringeauctions@gmail.com letting her know a reserve price (the lowest price the print or book should sell for) for the print/book and a guide price that we start bids at (the current market value) for each donation. Jo will also be able to answer any queries you may have, so please do not hesitate to ask.

We aim to reach a wide audience to boost the amount of money we can raise through the auction. Every lot will also be listed here and promoted through our social media outlets, now with over 10,000 followers. All money raised by the auction of your donations will fund our ongoing support of lens-based artists.

If you are not able to donate a print or book please make a donation here
or buy one of our limited edition badges by Jason Evans in one of the BPF14 Hubs.
