The International Photography Exhibition 163 (IPE 163) is the world’s longest running photographic exhibition that celebrates contemporary photography from across the globe. Photographers and image-makers, of all ages, are invited to submit work for exhibition. Submissions are encouraged from new, emerging and established photographers. Anyone of any age can submit their images, including student, amateur, professional and non-professional photographers/image-makers internationally. The closing date for entries is Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
The Royal Photographic Society is an international charitable organisation based in Bristol, UK who are dedicated to increasing the knowledge, understanding, and enjoyment of photography. Founded in 1853, the RPS is one of the world’s oldest photographic societies.
Alongside a £5,500 prize fund split into different amounts for four prizes, awards include a group and solo exhibition at the Royal Photographic Society in Bristol and a photographic commission to create new work. The IPE 163 is open to all photographers and image-makers, working in any subject or genre. New approaches, alternative photographic processes and experimental work is encouraged. As the IPE is an open-call exhibition all subjects and approaches can be submitted. There are no predefined categories, allowing for a completely open submission.
Entry is free for one image, and up to four images can be submitted from $25, as a series or as individual images. Exhibition selection is anonymous throughout, including the award winners, with a changing guest selection panel for each edition. Each IPE edition is a unique celebration of photography today.
