International Print Exhibition


*The 2016 selection panel will be announced on 10 Feb*
Further details on how to enter will be available shortly.

The RPS International Print Exhibition is steeped in history, having been held almost every year since 1854 - the year after The Society was founded. Now in its 159th year, it is the longest running exhibition of its kind in the world. 

Entry to the competition is initially online and submissions will be reviewed by an influential panel of prominent photographers and photographic professionals who will individually shortlist work. Shortlisted photographers will be required to submit prints and the panel will work together to curate the exhibition of 100 images.

Selected photographers will be eligible for several cash prize awards (totalling £4,250) aimed at helping to support future photographic projects. They will also benefit from the extensive exhibition tour, which will see the work travelling to six venues across the UK. From a mix of public and educational venues as well as photo festivals and traditional gallery spaces, the exhibition will engage with and be enjoyed by a wide public audience.

The International Print Exhibition 159 will open in October at Photomonth International Photography Festival in London, amidst a packed programme of events. The Old Truman Brewery will be hosting the exhibition at PHOTOBLOCK, their dedicated space for photographic events during the festival. The opening night of the festival is a hive of everything photographic, attracting a large number of visitors.
