The Royal Photographic Society is delighted to announce the 2021 call for entries for the 163rd edition of the International Photography Exhibition (IPE 163). The world's longest running exhibition celebrates contemporary photography from across the globe and showcases the most compelling images and stories of our time.
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.


100 images, chosen by a distinguished selection panel, will form a group exhibition at the Royal
Photographic Society, Bristol, UK. After its first showing at the RPS, the IPE 163 will tour nationwide.
Selected photographers will also be featured in the award-winning RPS Journal.


One free entry is available to all entrants, then £18 - £30.




Selected photographers will be offered exclusive opportunities. A £4000 prize fund will be awarded to
standout entrants, including an Under 30s Award. New awards for 2021 include a two-week solo show
at the RPS and a £1250 commission to create new work.
