THE ROYAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL Print Competition

EXHIBIT YOUR WORK IN THE WORLD’S LONGEST RUNNING PRINT EXHIBITION

The Society invites professional, student and amateur photographers worldwide to submit their work. This year, for the first time in its history, we are inviting digital entries alongside print entries.  Both will be considered equally and the final exhibition will be displayed as prints, with online entries being printed professionally by Redcliffe Imaging Ltd.  All entrants will receive a copy of the exhibition catalogue.

Entry is open to everyone (RPS members and non-members) until 17 May 2013.  Entrants can submit up to 4 images online or as prints, into one of two groups;

Under 30’s*

All styles of photography will be considered including documentary, fashion, fine art, photojournalism, travel, portraiture and nature. Each image submitted will be judged as a single, stand-alone image so you can enter a varied selection of work. 100 images will be selected for the printed touring exhibition, including the three award winners!
