The Future Focus Open Call is aimed at art graduates, from all artistic disciplines – photography, fine art, contemporary art, illustration, graphic design, animation, performance, installation, sculpture, film, and moving image.

Submissions to the Future Focus Open Call are free. A longlist of approximately 100 artists will be selected by the FORMAT and QUAD curatorial team and our prestigious jury: Abbas Zahedi, The White Pube, Lucy Sollitt, Maitreyi Maheshwari, Jamila Prowse and Saziso Phiri will make the final selection of winning submissions.

Eligibility: national and international BA Degree students who have graduated from a UK University in 2020 and 2021 – during the Covid-19 pandemic – and were unable to exhibit their final work, or were limited in opportunities to show their work.

What you get: Five artists will be selected to exhibit their work in Derby’s QUAD gallery by the FORMAT and QUAD curatorial team and a jury of industry experts.
