Open for entries 20 February – 21 May 2024

The Royal Photographic Society is delighted to announce the 2024 call for entries for the 166th edition of the International Photography Exhibition (IPE 166). The world’s longest running photography exhibition celebrates contemporary photography from across the globe.

The open call welcomes submissions from new, emerging, and established photographers of all ages and working in any subject or genre. New approaches, alternative photographic processes and experimental work is encouraged.

Selected photographers will be offered exclusive opportunities. A £2250 prize fund will be awarded to standout entrants, including the IPE Award, Under 30s Award and visitor prize. 100 images, chosen by a guest selection panel, will form a group exhibition at the Royal Photographic Society, UK in 2025. Selected photographers will also be featured in the award-winning RPS Journal and IPE Zine as well as across the RPS digital channels.

Entry is free for one image, and up to four images can be submitted for £18 – £30, as a series or as individual images.
