The competition is organised by The Royal Photographic Society (RPS).
The International Photography Exhibition (formerly known as the International Print Exhibition) is steeped in history, having been held almost every year since 1854 – the year after The Society was founded. In the early years, the exhibition included work from some of the world’s most eminent photographers including Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Edward Steichen and others. Now in its 160th year, it is the longest running exhibition of its kind in the world.
The exhibition encompasses single images and series work across all genres including Landscape, Editorial, Photojournalism, Nature, Contemporary, Conceptual, Portraiture, Abstract and many more.
There are no themes and photographers are invited to submit four images digitally, via the competition website.
