We have opened a new chapter for the Photo Festival. For 2016 we are moving the Telluride Photo Festival to Boulder Colorado, and will now be known as the Boulder Photo Festival. The festival will be held over Labor Day weekend September 2 through September 5. Workshops again will again be during the week from August 29 to September 2.
Telluride was a great place to start the festival over its first four years. We needed to grow and Telluride’s location was inhibiting what we could do with the festival. Boulder has been extremely receptive to our relocation, and we look forward to being a part of the Boulder community.
We will miss Telluride and its unique character. It was truly a blast and I personally will never forget the wonderful memories there. The businesses there and the community organizations have always been welcoming and receptive to our mission. Telluride will always have a special place in our hearts, as I’m sure it does for all of our guests and attendees, but now on to something completely new and amazing.
This will be the Photo Festival’s 5th year! This is a major milestone for the festival, and we feel we are now at a point where the festival is established. The direction of the festival will remain the same with a focus on landscape, nature, adventure, action sports and conservation photography. Although with the new local and dates, we plan to add some other photographic genres. We will have announcements for workshops, guest speakers, seminars, portfolio reviewers and panel topics on February 1st 2016. Early sale passes will also go on sale at this time.
We are excited to announce something new this year that we have only been able to do in Boulder/Denver is a Photographic and Outdoor Products Trade Expo. You will have an opportunity to meet with reps from your favorite companies in addition to special discounts available only at the festival on product. This is something that we were never able to do in Telluride.
The Boulder Photo Festival is excited by the move, and the new opportunities it presents personally and professionally.
