How it works

The Invitation process:
The Biennale Creative Director, Jeff Moorfoot, invites 200 practicing high profile photographers and personalities (known and respected for their photography), to submit an image file to be printed, exhibited and offered for sale at this fundraising event.
 
The Print Process
Submitted images are printed by BIFB Partners to archival standards. Each image is stamped with the BIFB seal, the artist name and print title on verso as provenance. BIFB undertakes to print only one image from the supplied file.
 
The Exhibition
All works  are exhibited at Eleven40 Gallery, Malvern, Vic.  BIFB promotes the names of all of the photographers who are participants in the fundraiser, but presents the prints anonymously in the exhibition i.e. all works are exhibited without the author’s identity being revealed.
 
The Red Dot
Guests pre-purchase a numbered Red Dot or buy a red dot on the day for $125. A red dot entitles the purchaser to buy one of the prints in the exhibition.
 
The day commences with Red Dot #1 going to auction, followed by the calling of subsequent Red Dot numbers whose owner proceeds to select their desired print from the remaining available prints. Note: the selection order is a random process – the earlier your number comes out of the barrel the greater the number of images you have to choose from.
