Call for Entries with RPS

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 16:30

Photographers and image-makers, of all ages, are invited to submit their work for the 163rd edition of the RPS International Photography Exhibition (IPE 163). Submissions are encouraged from new, emerging and established photographers worldwide.


This is an unique opportunity to exhibit in a group exhibition at The Royal Photographic Society in Bristol, UK, and other nationwide venues. Alongside a prize fund to support future photographic projects, this year we are excited to announce several new awards, including a 2-week solo exhibition and a photographic commission to create new work.


Exhibition selection is anonymous throughout, including the award winners, with a changing guest selection panel for each edition. The process is both rigorous and fair, where digital image and print work form part of the selection process. Each IPE edition is a unique celebration of photography today.


1. Anyone of any age can submit their images to the IPE - this includes student, amateur, professional and non-professional photographers and image-makers worldwide.


2. The IPE is an open-call exhibition; therefore all subjects and approaches can be submitted, including alternative photographic processes and experimental work. There are no predefined categories, allowing for a completely open submission. Entrants can submit four images from a series of work or four single images. One free single image entry is available to everyone.


3. Enter your work online. After the closing date, 27 April 2021, the online selection takes place and all shortlisted entrants are invited to submit prints for the final stage of selection. Entrants remain anonymous throughout the online and print selection process.
