Golden Negatives

Can you find our Golden Negatives?

The hunt is on for Golden Negatives at this week’s Future Now Symposium in York.

Spectrum Photographic will be placing concertina cameras in goody bags at the event on May 17 and 18.

Three of the cameras will contain prize-winning Golden Negatives which include a winning ticket.

Anyone who finds one of the Golden Negatives will win £150 of credit with Spectrum Photographic.

Future Now Syposium

Through panels, lectures, portfolio reviews and advice sessions, the Future Now Symposium is a platform to consider the arts ecosystem within a broader social, political and professional context.

Holding talent development at its core, the two-day event is a hive of innovation and idea generation.

This year’s topics call into question new modes of communication, reflecting upon the era of ‘post-truth’ through discussions around photography, design, sculpture, painting and journalism.

They will explore the wider effects of over-consumption, media stimulation and data dissemination.

A wealth of speakers from the UK’s leading organisations, publications and galleries are booked for this year’s event. Topics include:

  • The Value of Design;
  • Arts Journalism in the Digital Age;
  • The New Language of Software;
  • How To Get Ahead as an Emerging Artist;
  • An Examination of Post-Truth;
  • Risk Taking in Curation;
  • Diversity in the Art World.
