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.
Meanwhile, the judges select an overall winner, announced at the street party on 6 July Summershow itself, with the winner receiving £2000.
Judges this year are: Gerry Badger, Phil Coomes, Alison Jackson, Simon Roberts and Ossian Ward. Closing date for entries is 1 May 2012. An administration fee of £20 applies to all entries.
