We announce prize pot for this year’s London Photo Festival! #photography #London

Continuing with our year of celebration (this year we will be holding our 10th London Photo Festival), we have introduced a prize fund of £500 to share between the photographers selected by our judge as Best in Show, 1st and 2nd Runners ups.  The winner of the public vote, the f-Factor, will also win photography related prizes!

We believe in giving new and emerging photographers a chance they would rarely get elsewhere: the opportunity to exhibit their work in a relaxed, professional environment.

Unlike other galleries, exhibitions and festivals, we do not judge your work – as long as it is not offensive, we will display it. All you have to do is pay a small fee and you can enter here.

BOOK TICKETS FESTIVAL MASTER CLASS WITH ZOE WHISHAW – Commercial Travel Photography

In years gone by, travel was more about pilgrimage as a religious journey with pilgrims seeking a change in their lives. Then there was the Grand Tour with the elite classes indulging on educational and cultural expeditions. Nowadays travel is all about escape, experience and discovery in the hope we can leave something behind as we explore unfamiliar lands, forging new memories and learning that bit more about ourselves.

This interactive evening workshop explores how the communication industry uses travel imagery as a means to communicate these ideas and emotions. We’ll explore:

  • What type of imagery is most commonly sought after and why?
  • What are the markets for travel imagery?
  • How does advertising uses travel imagery?
  • What are the attributes of successful commercial travel images?
  • How can images get seen and ideally used?

When: 16th October 2014

Times: 6.30pm – 9.30 pm (including half hour ‘meet and mingle’ at the end)

Where: The Crypt, Borough High Street, London SE1 1JA

Cost: Previous exhibitors (including October 2014) £25; non-exhibitors  £35

Places are limited and early booking is advised.
