The London Salon of Photography has now been holding an Annual International Exhibition for more than 100 years and despite all the changes in photography still aims to show photography “which shows artistic feeling and appreciation", in other words "Pictorial Photography" but this, of course, includes and encourages the most "creative and up to date styles being practiced today" as well as the more traditional pictorial images. There are many exhibitions held annually but the London Salon is one of the few, purely PRINT exhibitions, which shows ALL the accepted prints at its first showing in London then in Smethwick and a large percentage in Edinburgh and Ireland. The exhibition is seen in all venues by a large number of people and the Openings are an opportunity for many photographers to enjoy the social aspect of these events.
Our last exhibition a Catalogue was produced with many of the accepted images reproduced (approx. 100) and a CD is also produced with a commentary which can be purchased for showing in Clubs or Groups.
Judged by approximately 20 of the Salon Members and, although not easy to achieve enough votes for selection, authors can be justly proud if their work is selected especially if awarded a Salon Medal of which there are up to ten awarded each year.
This year we have TWO classes, MONO and COLOUR four prints may be entered in each section.
There is an on line entry system, further details see below or on attached poster which we would be very grateful if you could print and show in your Society etc. to help us to show the very best of photography in the world today.
All details of how to enter can be found on www.londonsalon.org
