Quilter Cheviot is pleased to announce our headline sponsorship of the 2018 Belfast Photo Festival. The festival runs from 7 – 20 June 2018 across the city of Belfast and will combine popular culture, topical themes, unexpected indoor and outdoor public encounters with exceptional photographic work.
Working in collaboration with Belfast’s finest museums and galleries, the festival attracts photographers from across the world, while putting Northern Ireland itself at the centre of the lens. Belfast Photo Festival has become an important platform for nurturing and promoting photographers of all ages and styles, providing them with the professional and educational opportunities and resources to develop their careers.
In 2018, the festival has taken its inspiration from the interplay between music and photography in its exhibitions, talks and workshops. In a playful way we recognize the important role of photography in the music industry and how artists have portrayed this industry in their work.

This year’s exhibitions and events take place across both public and private spheres, in which audiences can engage with discussions around contemporary photography and new creative approaches. Opportunities to learn, network and develop ones photographic skills and knowledge will help to encourage and guide the next generation and those emerging photographers looking to build a successful creative future.
To celebrate our partnership with Belfast Photo Festival, this April we will be launching the interview series ‘Power of Photography’, sharing the photographic experiences and successes of photographers making their mark through the medium.
These photographers will share the knowledge they’ve gained through investing in the perfection of their craft.
