The Glasgow Gallery of Photography is running a month long exhibition in September called Darkness Falls. For this exhibition we are asking photographers to submit images that show the varying aspects of night photography. Shooting from dusk till dawn, night photography can be challenging to master, but when it is, photographers can produce some of the most amazing photographs. So from the moments as darkness falls, to just before dawn approaches, we want to the images that you capture from this time.
Darkness Falls is an open call for photographers to submit up to 8 images that meet the theme and genre of night photography.
Photographers who are selected will have their work displayed in a month long exhibition in our gallery, with their work also appearing online in an online gallery on our website.
All participants that are selected to take part in the exhibition will be put forward for a chance to be named Photographer of the Month.
We want to see work from both emerging and established photographers. You do not need to be a professional photographer to participate as we believe that photography is for everyone.
Both Scottish and International photographers are welcome.
How to participate:
Submission are FREE. If your work is selected there will be a participation fee of £48.00
This fee covers the cost of everything. We will print, install and un-install the work our gallery space.
