AND 2021 – Sign up here to submit

AND 2021 - Submissions now open - A celebration of emerging contemporary photographers from across the globe. Each year we strive to celebrate and support the outstanding work of those who are consistently creating unique and powerful stories.

AND is a free to enter yearly competition. An annual showcase of some of the most interesting and distinctive photographic works in a multitude of styles and disciplines from across the globe. With a free open submission to all, the best stand alone images are carefully selected by our team and published in our yearly home exhibition publication.

This year has brought many difficulties, but with these events, we have ushered in new changes to the way we think about exhibiting work, create publications, and how to best support emerging practitioners. AND aims to break down the boundaries of static exhibitions and offer a unique publication designed to bring this collection into your space giving you the role of curator. Alongside this, 2021 will be the first year we hold a digital exhibition with these same principles. This is a competition for all, with no boundaries, no pay-to-play, no catch, supporting the works of new up and coming contemporary photographers. AND then there was us.

We passionately believe in championing some of the most exciting and engaging work from contemporary practitioners. Through our online content, printed publications and exhibitions, we want to open up the conversation around powerful narratives that cover events, people, place, industry, society and culture. Celebrating, supporting and showcasing the less heard, the less obvious.

Submissions close at midnight on 31st May 2021.
