London Festival of Photography Prize
Win a trip to London, £2000 in cash prizes and be featured in a world-class exhibition in central London in June as part of the festival.
The London Festival of Photography Prize is an opportunity for photographers to submit projects for inclusion in a world-class exhibition celebrating the annual festival theme. Each year the festival will explore a relevant and far-reaching theme through photographic exhibitions, workshops, participatory activities and debates.
This prestigious prize will achieve critical acclaim for the chosen winners. Every entry will be seen by a judging panel of internationally renowned experts. The Street Photography Awards exhibition run by the festival in 2011 was seen by 6,000 visitors and the winners and finalists have had their images published worldwide. The exhibition sat alongside the festival’s Vivian Maier exhibition, listed by the Observer and Culture as one of 2011’s top 10 photography shows in the UK.
There are two options for submission:
• the photo-series category (still images only) and
• the photo-film category (multimedia)
Deadline: Thursday 29 March 2012, 11.59pm BST (London, UK time)
Exhibition dates: 1-17 June 2012
Exhibition Venue: Dog Eared Gallery, Central London
The emphasis of the prize is on visual storytelling. Projects must work together as a whole and include some sort of narrative structure. We are not looking for single images or fashion/advertising/studio work.
Two winners, one for each category, will be flown to London for the exhibition and festival opening and each presented with a cheque for £1,000.
See your work in front of the most influential people in the UK photography industry (curators, gallerists, commissioners, collectors, journalists, publishers, agents) and mingle with fellow photographers and artists at your very own launch party!
