Foto8 2011 Summershow

ss2011_500 Foto8 2011 Summershow – photographic award, exhibition and a print fair. The Foto8 2011 Summershow is now open for entry to all photographers: student, professional and non-professional, until 15th May (late entries until 1 June 2011 at higher admin fee). Now in its fourth year, this highly-esteemed annual open photography competition promises to be the biggest and most successful yet.

Last year attracting over 2000 entries from 40 countries, the award with a prize of £2000 has grown to become an established event, recognised for showcasing and supporting dynamic new work from emerging and established contemporary photographers.

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. Above all, we encourage free expression and are keen to see new and creative approaches that explore the realm of story-telling.

London’s prestigious HOST Gallery in EC1 is the setting for the Summershow where up to 150 images will be selected for exhibition: to be seen and judged by respected industry professionals from the photography, arts and media worlds. The winner of the ‘Best In Show’ prize of £2000 will be announced at the Summershow launch party on 8 July 2011, with a second ‘People’s Choice’ decided by votes from the public announced at the end of the show. Recognising the importance of affordable photography, all the original works displayed in the gallery will be for sale, at a price set by the artists themselves. All shortlisted work will be included in a printed catalogue and online slideshow. Proceeds from print sales will be shared between the photographer and Foto8 and the winner will feature in the November issue of Foto8 Magazine.
