115 prints were selected for the 2013 exhibition, from over 4,000 images submitted by entrants in 59 countries. Documentary work excelled and it is notable this year that all award winners were Italian photographers.

Documentary, street portraiture and urban architecture were popular subjects in the 2013 edition of the International Print. Alternative processes also featured including an ambrotype and tintype by Guy Brown FRPS and two astronomical observations by William Arnold, produced using homemade tin-can pinhole cameras.

Fine Art Photographer, Bill Jackson, comments “For me when looking at photographs, I want more than just an immediate experience. I want to be able to go back time and time again and find more in the image and all three winners gave me that pleasure. I seek integrity and seriousness of intent, something more than just a good shot. There were many images that intrigued you, beguiled you, made you smile or just left you bemused but in the end I believe the choices we made as a group will leave you with thoughts and ideas beyond the immediacy of the image itself. This was certainly the case with the winner Antonio Busiello’s The Cullatore. At first you are repulsed but then you are drawn into this world where this man carries his calluses with pride”. Bill Jackson, 2013 Selector.
