After the closing date, the selectors will make a shortlist from all the digital images submitted. All images are judged anonymously - the selectors view only the images, titles and descriptions.
Shortlisted photographers will be given 4 weeks to submit prints of their selected images and selectors will together, hand pick 100 prints for the touring International Print Exhibition 157, including the Gold, Silver, Bronze and Under 30s Gold Award winners.
The RPS will mount and frame the final exhibition and the photographer will only need to submit a print of their image. The only requirement we will set is the maximum image size of 22”x18” (so the work fits our frames) and the printing choices of the final print are to be made by the photographer.
Metro and Hahnemühle will be offering a special print package to shortlisted photographers. This option includes a special discounted price to print the image plus delivery to the RPS in time for the final selection.
