International Print Exhibition

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 to the next International Print Exhibition will open in March 2015! If you would like to be notified when the call to submit work is announced, please email:

From the artistic to documentary, from portraiture to natural history, all styles of photography can be entered for consideration.  The selectors, who each year inlcude a mix of 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 selected for the exhibition presents an excellent opportunity for photographers to see their work travel across the country, reaching a vast and diverse audience during the 10 month UK tour. The mix of international photographers often sees the exhibition publicised throughout the world. Publicity via the UK national and local press, photographic press, online and social media can really kick start the careers of young and emerging photographers. Previous selected International Print Exhibition photographers have included Simon Roberts HonFRPSLaura Pannack, Jordi Ruiz Cirera and Julia Fullerton-Batten.
