The ESPY Photography Award, in partnership with Elysium Gallery, is a biennial open submission photography exhibition based in Swansea, Wales that welcomes entries from UK & International artists.
We are looking for submissions that show imaginative and vibrant practice in contemporary photography, showcasing photographers that are working on projects in both Analogue and Digital formats.
Espy is interested in photographers that push the boundaries and experiment with their chosen technologies.
We are looking for work that is created digitally with an outcome as a digital print or even transcend into other formats of presentation. Analogue is defined as shooting on film then creating darkroom or digital prints, camera less darkroom techniques, chemigrams or any part of the process created using analogue process.
The ESPY 2019 Photo Award is FREE to enter:
After the selection process if you are one of the artists selected to participate in the Swansea exhibition you will be required to pay a £25 exhibitions fee which will directly feed straight back into the set-up, catalogue and prize costs. ESPY and elysium gallery are not-for-profit, artist-led organisations. We will accept entries by email or by post.
This year there are two prizes. £1000 for Analogue and £1000 for digital with both artists also receiving a joint show at elysium gallery in 2020. All shortlisted artists will be included in the exhibition catalogue.
Plus a special prize of a years membership to Shutter Hub.
