BJP International Photography Award 2017

£5000 production grant from Metro Imaging


Now in its 11th edition, British Journal of Photography’s annual International Photography Award is a leading showcase for contemporary photographic talent.

Photographers around the world are invited to submit their work to a panel of elite industry experts, and one winner will be selected to receive a three week solo exhibition at TJ Boulting, an innovative gallery in the heart of London, plus a £5000 production grant from the UK’s leading pro-lab, Metro Imaging. They will also have their work published across British Journal of Photography’s print and digital channels, and showcased globally on WeTransfer, the world’s leading file sharing platform reaching over 80 million creatives each month.
