We are very pleased to announce our festival cover image this year to represent our In-between Places theme, created by our competition winner Jo Kaberry.

After many submissions of very high quality it was a close competition between the artists featured on this page. After much deliberation our panel decided that the image of the fox, an animal that lives between town and country and comes out in-between day and night, set within a familiar Didsbury place, created a striking and engaging response to the theme. Find out more about Jo's work here.

Meha Hindocha’s In-between Places image is a beautiful and intricate drawing combining many familiar Didsbury places and activities set within a surreal dreamscape narrative. You can find out more about Meha's work here.
