The Frontline Club’s Tenth Anniversary Summer
Our summer screenings explore how technological developments are shaping the way we view and document the world. They include Keanu Reeves’ Side by Side examining the shift from photochemical to digital filming, Ben Lewis’ Google and the World Brain exploring the realisation of HG Wells famous 1937 prediction and Andreas M. Dalsgaard’s unique portrayal of the megacity.
In August we look back at the past ten years of photojournalism and front line reporting, as part of a series of reflective talks. We will be joined by senior figures including: Jon Snow, Channel 4 News presenter; Aidan Sullivan, vice president of Getty Images; Iraqi journalist, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad; Lindsey Hilsum, international editor of Channel 4 News and Paul Wood, world affairs correspondent for the BBC.
Throughout the summer our unique restaurant will be serving the best of modern British cuisine, both inspired by and grown at our farm in Norfolk. Here you can dine in atmospheric surroundings whilst contributing to the Club itself, with profits being ploughed back into our charitable work.
Our members are what makes the Frontline Club tick, and this summer we are launching a new young persons concession rate, to help the next generation gain a foothold in the industry.
The Frontline Club Awards return in 2013 for their seventh year. Entries are now open to all working in the fields of photography, print and video news. Last years winners included videojournalist Mani and Reuters photojournalist Goran Tomasevic. The ceremony will take place on 24 October and is once again kindly supported by Vodafone and Chivas Brothers.
Finally, the Frontline Club will be sailing across the channel and setting up in Bayeux, Normandy for the twentieth edition of the Prix Bayeux awards. We will be exhibiting over two floors at Le Radar gallery. Showcasing archive images from FNTV, candid photos of events and club life, and a range of freelance work from the newly founded Frontline Freelance Register. Jump on the ferry and pay us a visit from 7-13 October.
