Entries are now open for the Members’ Biennial Exhibition 2017

An unmissable event in the RPS members' calendar, the Members’ Biennial Exhibition represents the incredible talent and diverse interests of the Society’s current membership.

Open to RPS members across the globe, images will be shortlisted by an esteemed panel which includes photographers Steve Smith FRPS, Tony Bramley FRPS, Maria Falconer FRPS, Andre du Plessis FRPS and photographer/Editor of Digital Camera Magazine Benedict Brain ARPS. Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards will be chosen from this shortlist by world renowned photographer Joe McNally FRPS. The selected images will form an exhibition, scheduled to tour the UK next year. 

The Biennial Exhibition is one of the many great ways The RPS support its members’ passion for photography and is a key addition to The Society’s programme. From digital to analogue, including alternative processes, phone photography and scientific work, this competition is open to entries across the broad spectrum of photographic practice focussing exclusively on the creative community of members that are central to The RPS.

The selected exhibition, which will tour the UK from March, will also include work from several of The Society’s Honorary Fellows, offering members the opportunity to exhibit their work alongside some of the most respected names in photography today.
