Open call for an International Photography Exhibition. This month long exhibition will be a photography exhibition with the theme of Shape. Free to submit, open to everyone.

The Glasgow Gallery of Photography's mission is to advance the arts, heritage and cultural sector through exhibitions of photographic works as a means for artistic, community and personal expression.

The Glasgow Gallery of Photography is running a month long exhibition in June around the theme of Shape. Thinking about photography in the most basic of terms, what we are really capturing when take photographs are shapes. Be that silhouettes, abstract images, or architecture we want you to submit images that you think best showcases the theme of shape that can be captured in photography. 

Shape is an open call for photographers to submit up to 8 images of any genre that really emphasises shape in the photographs.  

Photographers who are selected will have their work displayed for a month long exhibition.

Work will appear online in our online gallery on our website.

We want you to send your best images. We want work from both emerging and established photographers. You do not need to be a professional photographer to participate as we believe that photography is for everyone.

Both Scottish and International photographers are welcome.

All participants that are selected to take part in the exhibition will be put forward for a chance to be named Photographer of the Month.

How to participate:

Submission for this exhibition is FREE.  If your work is selected there is a participation fee of £48
