The annual RPS International Print Exhibition has been held almost every year since 1854, and is the longest standing exhibition of its kind in the world. Anyone can enter and everyone has an equal chance of their work being selected. Entry for the 2014 Exhibition (157th) closed on 18 March and a call for entries to the next exhibition will be announced in December.
From the artistic to documentary, from portraiture to natural history, all styles of photography can be entered for consideration. The selectors, who each year come from differing backgrounds including professional photographers, artists, university lecturers, picture editors and Fellows of The Society, look for work that has not previously been seen in exhibitions. The resulting show is unique in subject and style and showcases the variety of photographic work that is currently being created worldwide.
Having a print in the exhibition gives recognition to photographers just starting out in their careers, provides enthusiasts with real pride and gives professionals exposure of their work. Previous selected International Print Exhibition photographers have included Simon Roberts HonFRPS, Laura Pannack and Julia Fullerton-Batten.
