Foto8 Summershow

With no set theme photographers are invited to submit recent work, of any subject, style or genre, which engages or challenges the viewer, either to convey stories, raise questions or provoke feeling.

The successful images hang floor to ceiling in Foto8 Gallery for a six-week period over the summer, giving the audience the opportunity to pick a personal favourite, which in turn may stand a chance of winning the coveted People’s Choice award – and some professional photographic kit.
