Theme: HOME & AWAY

1854 Media & British Journal of Photography are inviting both emerging & established photographers, from all over the world, to submit work to OpenWalls Arles, an exhibition responding to the theme ‘HOME & AWAY’.

We want you to interpret this theme freely; show us images that capture your sense of belonging, escapism or identity. Submissions will be judged as a single image.

We are opening up the walls of Galerie Huit Arles, to exhibit 50 shortlisted images for a month in July 2019 alongside Les Rencontres d’Arles. Three finalists will also be invited to join us in Arles, where one overall winner will then be chosen by a group of key industry leaders at the show’s opening event.

Enter today and you could have your work exhibited in Arles, to coincide with one of the world’s most established photographic festivals. This is your opportunity to show your work to thousands of industry experts, peers and visitors from across the world.

Deadline: Thursday 13 September – 4pm BST
