Deadline : May 01, 2012 // Application fee : £ 20
Judges this year are : Gerry Badger, Phil Coomes, Alison Jackson, Simon Roberts and Ossian Ward.
With no set theme photographers are invited to submit recent work, of any subject, style or genre, which engages or challenges the viewer, either to convey stories, raise questions or provoke feeling. Free expression is encouraged which should bring forth creative approaches that explore the realm of story-telling.
2012 marks the fifth year of the Summershow, as it continues its trajectory as a consistently record-breaking event : in 2011, 1000 entrants from around the globe contributed to a final count of 2,853 images to create London’s premiere salon de photographie.
The successful images hang floor to ceiling in Foto8 Gallery for a six-week period over the summer, giving you, the audience, the opportunity to pick your personal favourite, which in turn may stand a chance of winning the coveted People’s Choice award – and some professional photographic kit. Judges will select an overall winner, announced at the wild street party that has come to personify the spirit of the Summershow itself, with the winner receiving £2000.
