Saltaire Arts Trail is an annual visual arts festival showcasing contemporary art and craft that takes place in the world heritage village of Saltaire, part of Bradford District in West Yorkshire.

If you wish to submit any moving image material as part of your proposal this should be via a link to where it can be seen online and should be no more than 10 minutes in length.
