How does the BFOP work?
BFOP 2023 Timeline
Ticket Sales go live
Wow! The tickets are live... quick quick quick!!!! This year you won't get a voucher code sent out, just a confirmation email.
Workshops are published
BFOP is MASSIVE and we like to bring you the best of the best so our full line-up of instructors and workshops won't be live until May 2023 and even then we will add to this list right up until September.
BFOP Schedule published
The schedule is locked in with individual workshop times as well as how many credits the workshops are worth. You have $400 of credit to spend of workshops. In the mean time check out the 2022 schedule for an idea of how it all fits together.
Ticket Sales Close
Haven't got your ticket yet? Well if we have any left this will be your last day to purchase one.
Instructions emailed out
Stressing about how the system will work? Us too. We will send out comprehensive instructions to all ticket holders on the 18th Sept.
BFOP Workshop Bookings go live
In this period you can book UP TO $400 of workshops using your BFOP 2022 credit (not a cent over though). If you have a little leftover credit you'll be able to use it the week after.
Cash Workshop Bookings go live
Used most of or all of your credit but want to jump onto more incredible workshops??? All good, on the 1st October we open up cash payments for additional workshops using your credit card. If you have a little residual credit you can blend this with cash payment for workshops too! BOOM! Fill that schedule. You will need to be a ticket holder to purchase workshops.
BFOP Kicks off!
Registrations start in the morning at the main marquee and the festival kicks off at 1pm! Boom! Have a weekend that will define your 2022!
Eeeeeerrr yes… unless COVID rears its head again. If that happens we will be back online but that is DEFINITELY not the plan. If we do need to change direction you’ll have a chance to get a refund on your ticket.
Your $400 credit stretches differently depending on the types of workshops you book. Workshops vary in price between $50 credit and $250 credit (approx). Most people manage to get around 3-5 workshops. And of course you get unlimited admission to all the free sh@t we put on including the two main stages.
We all want more credit am I right? If you run out of credit there is an opportunity to book more workshops once everyone has had a chance to use their credit. This makes it a fair system and one we can manage.
Well to start with you get to hang out with like 500 amazing people in the photography community. But if that’s not enough to float your boat then of course you have your $400 credit to book onto workshops as well as access to 2 main stages with sunrise-to-sunset presentations. We also have a retail space with heaps of specials as well as a bar!
Nope, not unless we reschedule or need to change format to an online event. It’s not that we’re being difficult about it, it’s just that we have a very small team, limited tickets and a ton of moving parts so this can zap tons of time. Your ticket is transferable though so you can re-sell it if you like… think of it like a concert or cinema ticket.
