In 2020 we are running the show with the safety of visitors and exhibitors at the forefront of our minds. We will implement procedures to keep people safe including a cleaning regime, social distancing, track and and trace and a one way system. There will be a maximum of 30 people allowed on each floor.
We have aimed to keep entry as simple as possible. All you need to do is reserve your place by completing the form on the How to Enter page. Then we’ll send you a set of simple instructions to get your images to show in the correct format an on time.
We’d like you to supply some information about yourself to be displayed alongside your prints and we’d like to include this and a link to your online portfolio on our website. You’ll be asked to submit this information after you have completed your registration.
The London Photo Show: Southbank takes place at the Bargehouse Gallery, Oxo Tower Wharf, South Bank, from 13-19 October 2020 (13 and 14 Oct are installation days and 20 Oct is de-installation).
No. If you’re not yet sure of which photos to submit we recommend you enter now. You only need to submit your prints on the first day of the show.
Yes. Use the contact us page and we’ll send you details of how we can help, including some advice sessions.
We’ll give you detailed instructions on how and when to deliver and collect your work.
Photos can be in any format as long as they can be attached to a wall. They must be framed or mounted. Framed or prints on heavier mounts such as dibond, metal or wood must have a hook on the back. Lighter mounts such as card or foamboard don’t need this. Prints will be displayed in the same format as they are provided by you to the show.
Yes, although that is not the primary reason to take part. Someone may love your print so much that they want to buy it. If your print is for sale we recommend including a contact number or email with the information to be displayed alongside your print so that the buyer can contact you directly. If someone wants to buy your print they will contact you directly so you can handle the sale. We don’t charge a commission.
You can include a diagram with your prints and we will attempt to adhere to it, but our hanging team may adjust it depending on the space you are in.
One of the highlights of the London Photo Show is the Private View evening. We would love to see you there and you can bring a reasonable number of guests. We need to have a rough idea of the numbers of people attending so will ask you how many people you’ll be bringing and we might have to limit numbers due to Covid restrictions.
The London Photo Show is organised by the same people who run the 36exp Photographers’ School.
