Glasgow International


General Info About Images

Organisations are asked to provide images of the artists work for press use. These images are a vital factor in the success of our press campaign. We are looking for images that reflect – where possible – the nature of the commission. Images of work in progress are also welcome.

It’s important to make clear that often the projects given the best coverage are those with excellent quality images that clearly tell the story of your project.

We will also require high-resolution images of your project. It is each individual project’s responsibility to capture adequate documentation, which should be submitted to the Glasgow International PR team in time for reviews coming out – generally over the first weekend of the festival. This information will then be updated on the festival website (if not already there).

Please ensure that appropriate permissions have been given for any images submitted to us.

Image Formats

Web-sized images: JPEG ONLY, Max 1MB

Print sized images: JPEG ONLY, Max 5MB

Image Credits

All images must be accompanied by an image caption including:

  • Artist’s name
  • Year
  • Title
  • Description
  • Appropriate credits

Image Deadlines

Glasgow International will begin to receive requests for images from the moment the festival dates are announced.

  • Deadline for images is with the marketing and press form: 2nd September 2019
  • Deadline for exhibition install shots: before 9pm Wednesday 22nd April 2020

These deadlines ensure images of your show can be made available to our press team for any press requests that come in prior to and over the opening days of the festival.
