RPS International Photography Exhibition 164 until 17 May 2022

Deadline: 17 May 2022. The RPS International Photography Exhibition (IPE) is the world’s longest running photography exhibition. We encourage everyone to participate in the annual open call, including new, emerging and established photographers worldwide, and everyone can submit one image for free. Explore the entry information below and find out how you can take part.

The RPS is an independent educational charity. By supporting the IPE, you help us to continue our mission of bringing ‘Photography for Everyone’.

The IPE presents a unique opportunity to exhibit in a group exhibition at The Royal Photographic Society in Bristol, UK, and other nationwide venues, alongside a prize fund to support future photographic projects.

Exhibition selection is anonymous throughout, including the award winners, with a changing guest selection panel for each edition. The process is both rigorous and fair, where digital image and print work form part of the selection process. Each IPE edition is a unique celebration of photography today.


• First prize: £1,500 and 1-year free membership to the RPS.

• £1,000 award for one photographer under 30 years of age and 1-year free membership to the RPS.

• £1250 commission to create new work for one selected photographer.
