The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition is the longest standing exhibition of its kind in the world. During its long history of over 150 years, it has gained a reputation for showcasing a wide range of genres and styles of photography, with cutting edge prints being shown alongside traditional work. This has ensured its uniqueness within the photographic world.
Each year The Society invites submissions from professional, student and amateur photographers worldwide, both members and non members. The Exhibition is selected by 5 well qualified photographers from different backgrounds and Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded. In 2007, The Society introduced an Under 25 Gold Award, which has been sponsored by Olympus UK Ltd. Since then, all under 25s selected for the exhibition have been awarded a year's free membership and a free submission to a Society Distinction Assessment as part of The Society's Youth Initiative.
Since 2008, Allen & Overy LLP, a leading international law firm, has sponsored The Exhibition. They have introduced monetary prizes along with specific awards in their own themed categories.
The Society is very grateful to Allen & Overy LLP and Olympus UK Ltd for their continued support.
An acceptance in The International Print Exhibition has always been coveted by professionals and amateurs alike and has helped many aspiring photographers to launch their career and achieve recognition.
The high profile of the exhibition's history, name and format ensures wide coverage by the photographic press and an enthusiastic response by gallery visitors. Each year the Exhibition of 120 - 125 selected prints tours the UK and ocassionally overseas. In recent years it has been shown in China and Ukraine.
