23rd Annual Exhibition – Call for Entries

We are now well underway with preparations for the 23rd LIP Annual Exhibition. Entry is open to all current members of LIP and is a great chance to showcase your work in a major London gallery. The selection process is anonymous (i.e. without knowing names of photographers) to make sure that the process is completely open and fair to all members.

For full information on exact times dates & locations and a step by step guide on what you need to do to enter please see the 23rd Annual Exhibition pages.

This year we have two great selectors to show your work to:

Exhibition Times & Private View
As last year the exhibition will be held in the Strand Gallery. It will open on Tuesday 18th October and close on Saturday 29th October; there will be a private view on the evening of Tuesday 18th for all members, details to follow closer to the time.

Submissions will be accepted at the start September at three locations in London (Chiswick, Shoreditch and Sydenham) from the 2nd to the 5th September. Please see the 23rd Annual Exhibition pages for full details or locations and time.

Exhibition Workshop
LIP will soon be running a one-day course to explain how to prepare for the LIP exhibition (or any other exhibition submission). We will cover how to select work, basic print preparation, mounting, printing, paper choices, framing options, common submission errors and an insight into what happens at the LIP selection day. The exact date & location are still to be confirmed but most likely to be at the end of July in central London and will have a small charge to cover the venue cost. If you would like to register for a place and for more information please email John Stead, Exhibition Organiser.
