Belfast Photo Festival: 2015 Open Submission

The international Belfast Photo Festival is offering artists and photographers the opportunity to exhibit their work in the main Festival gallery alongside some of the biggest names in the field, with a number also having the opportunity to be featured in the arts magazine Abridged.

The winners will be eligible for a number of awards, including a cash prize of £1,000.

The theme has been left open to remove any restrictions; submissions should be lens-based or photographic but can include experimentation through incorporations of other art forms with the photographic medium (i.e. performance, painting, sculpture, music, literature etc).

Individuals and collectives are welcome to apply;

  • awards and cash prizes (See Awards listed below)
