AIS Open: Women Behind the Lens

For this AIS Open, we’re looking for applications from UK and International women photographers, at all stages of their careers, of any background and of any age.

The exhibition theme is “Place & Space” and we want you to be creative, experimental and exploratory with your responses, interpreting the theme in whatever way you like.

Deadline for submissions is midnight Sunday 4th December 2022, your local time.

There are no fees for submitting work.

The first part of the selection process will be undertaken by curator Sebah Chaudhry. The final awards will be decided by a panel led by the curator and a panel composed of  judges who are experienced in the field of visual arts.

What will artists receive?

5 artists will be selected by an international jury and the AIS Open Curator as the overall winners. These artists’ work will be shown in an online exhibition in 2023. The artists will also be part of a mentorship day that will consist of talks and 1-2-1 portfolio reviews with the Jury. There are no fees for submitting work to this open call and there will be no artist fees offered for shortlisted entries.
