The annual RPS International Print Exhibition is now in its 157th year, and is the longest standing exhibition of its kind in the world, having been held almost every year since 1854. Anyone can enter and everyone has an equal chance of their work being selected.

This year over 6,600 images were submitted from photographers in 72 countries worldwide. 

The final 100 prints for the exhibition have now been selected, including the Gold, Under 30s Gold, Silver & Bronze Award winners.  All the successful photographers have been notified.  This year, the selected photographers represent 23 countries worldwide and 28% are under 30.

The selected images, including the award winners, will be announced at  the end of July and the selected images will be featured here, on the website.  In the meantime, you can still view the shortlisted entries on the competition site.

The exhibition is supported by Metro and Hahnemühle.
