THE RPS: Call for Entries / IPE 163

The worldwide open-call is now open for the 163rd edition of the International Photography Exhibition. Photographers and image-makers, of all ages, are invited to submit work for exhibition. Submissions are encouraged from new, emerging and established photographers.

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.
