10 great reasons why art festivals are valuable to photographers

Art festivals are a power package of opportunities for photographers who stand to gain valuable benefits and insights from participation as an exhibitor or visitor.

Here are 10 great reasons why photographers should exhibit and/or attend art festivals:

  1. Photographers are able to package and exhibit their work in a friendly, almost stress-free environment.
  2. Where else, besides photography trade shows, can photographers exhibit their work at a relevant theme-based event in front of hundreds or thousands of people ?
  3. Visitors attend art festivals because they like art and the festival atmosphere, and they want to take time to view the work of exhibitors.
  4. Exhibiting is probably the most cost-effective promotional advertising activity for photographers.
  5. Valuable insights into the image and profile of other exhibiting artists can be gained.
  6. Interesting observations on subject matter, lighting, composition, and techniques can be discussed face-to-face with the exhibitor.
  7. Art festivals accelerate the promotion of photographer name recognition and community awareness of their products and services.
  8. Passion for the arts shared by exhibitors and visitors is common ground that makes conversation and rapport-building much easier.
  9. Large numbers of visitors are motivated to check out the work of exhibitors at art festivals, which is a far cry from the reality of normal marketing and promotion activities.
  10. Art festivals are an enjoyable means to break away from the day-to-day routine.

Festivals are perfect venues where exhibitors who produce, and visitors who consume can connect in a very motivating and creative environment.
