The RPS International Print Exhibition is steeped in history, having been held almost every year since 1854 - the year after The Society was founded. In the early years, the exhibition included work from some of the world's most eminent photographers including Julia Margaret Cameron, Roger Fenton, Edward Steichen and others. Now in its 160th year, it is the longest running exhibition of its kind in the world.

Committed to promoting photography and supporting photographers, The RPS encourages anyone with an interest in photography to submit their work. The exhibition represents work from early career photographers and professionals as well as individuals who enjoy photography and feel they have something to offer.

Selected photographers are eligible for several cash prize awards aimed at helping to support future photographic projects and will also benefit from the exposure gained from the exhibition tour - which travels to venues across the UK, at a mix of public and educational venues as well as photo festivals and traditional gallery spaces.
