Would you like to have Erik Kessels see your work? Or Brett Rogers, director of The Photographers’ Gallery? How about Emma Bowkett, photography director of the award-winning FT Weekend Magazine? Now you can, via the BJP‘s International Photography Award.[bjp_ad_slot]
Offering photographers the chance to show their work at London’s TJ Boulting Gallery, the competition is divided into a series and a single image category; the series category will be judged by Erik Kessels, curator and co-founder of KesselsKramer communications agency; Brett Rogers OBE, director of The Photographers’ Gallery; Bruno Ceschel, director of Self Publish, Be Happy and SPBH Editions; Emma Bowkett, photography director for the Financial Times’ FT Weekend Magazine; and Hannah Watson, director of TJ Boulting gallery and Trolley Books. The single image category will be judged by Sean O’Hagan, photography critic for The Guardian and The Observer; Bruno Bayley, European managing editor Vice; Alexia Singh, editor-in-charge of the Wider Image Desk, Reuters; Sarah Thomson, head of art production, Fallon London; and Hannah Watson.
Entries can be on any topic, shot in any format and taken with any camera; photographers can be of any age and nationality. The closing date for entries is 11 November; both the series and the single image winner will have their work printed by Spectrum Photographic, one of Europe’s leading fine-art photography printers. The exhibition will take place in TJBoulting in early 2015. The BJP’s International Photography Award has been running since 2005, and previous winners include: Edmund Clark, a two-time nominee for the Deutsche Borse Photographic Prize; Chloe Dewe Mathews, winner of the 2014 Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography at the Peabody Museum, Harvard; and Giulio di Sturco, a previous World Press Photo Award winner.
