Print Exhibition

Entries are invited each year for the DI Group's Print Competition. Every entrant is guaranteed one acceptance into the Group's touring Members' Exhibition. Prints are selected at the Group's Annual General Meeting by a panel of three eminent photographers, who also choose the RPS Medal and Trophy winner and the six RPS Ribbon winners. Selected images are published in DIGIT.  The selected images will appear in a catalogue published after the event.

How it works. You prepare three images - both digital files and prints. When the event opens, you upload your digital files to the DIG competition entry system so we have a copy of your images so one can be taken for the catalogue. You then either drop your prints off at a centre, send them to the organiser, or bring them along to the AGM. There, the three selectors will pick one. The other two will be returned to you by post if you have asked for it, returned to your centre, or you collect them. The selectors then whittle the images down from however may entrants there are to choose their ribbon winners and overall winner. The selected print will join others at any exhibition space we can find. That selected digital image will also go into the catalogue, to be published some time after.

RPS Digital Imaging Group Online Gallery - The RPS Digital Imaging Hall of Fame displays all the images selected for recent Print Exhibitions  -  

2020 Exhibition News update!  We have provisionally booked Crosby Library in Liverpool for September and Swindon Library for November/December provided the country is back to normal.
