London Festival of Photography Prize 2012

WIN A TRIP TO LONDON AND £1,000

As the festival expands in 2012, the London Festival of Photography Prize is an opportunity for photographers to submit projects for inclusion in a world-class exhibition celebrating the annual festival theme. Each year the festival will explore a relevant and far-reaching theme through photographic exhibitions, workshops, participatory activities and debates.

This prestigious prize will achieve critical acclaim for the chosen winners. Every entry will be seen by a judging panel of internationally renowned experts. The Street Photography Awards exhibition run by the festival in 2011 was seen by 6,000 visitors and the winners and finalists have had their images published worldwide. The exhibition sat alongside the festival's Vivian Maier exhibition, listed by the Observer as one of 2011's top 10 photography shows in the UK.

There are two options for submission:

  • the photo-series category (still images only) and

  • the photo-film category (multimedia)

Why are there two categories?

Projects combining photography, moving image, sound and graphics have become important aspects of online journalism and story telling. This prize aims to salute those practitioners and discover who is creating the most exciting multimedia projects today. At the same time, we recognise the power of a carefully edited set of images that stand strong without additional effects.

The Theme

INSIDEOUT: REFLECTIONS ON THE PUBLIC AND THE PRIVATE

This theme intends to explore the changing boundaries between the public and the private, as both physical and metaphorical concepts, and the social consequences of these shifts. Considering the role of photography as a tool for documentation, expression and collaboration, the festival is looking for work responding to the theme in its broadest interpretation.
