Open Call: World Cup Project
June 4, 2018

We’ve now launched our collaborative World Cup project with photographers from across the UK. This is an open call for all those who want to submit their work. No matter what team you support, no matter where you watch the game, this World Cup project aims to document the diversity and celebration of football in the UK.

With football being the UK’s most popular sport and the World Cup now in play, we invite photographers from across the UK to take part in a new documentary series. Then There Was Us is proud to launch this collaborative project with an open call to all documentary photographers who want to take part. Through making this project open to all, we hope that we can create a broad and diverse outlook on football within the UK, documenting the pubs, clubs, homes and streets, we ask photographers to show what football means in their communities, to explore the diversity of the UK and the passion for football within it.

Selected images will be posted within this post featured on our home page for duration of the World Cup and all selected images will be published in our new upcoming series of small press publications (full details of the publication will be available after the project end.)
