Open Call to all 2022 graduates!

Photoworks, Photography+ The Graduate Issue call out is now open for 2022 BA and MA Photography Graduates.

With this yearly call out to recent graduates we want to support emerging artists, and recognise the innovative work being produced by international voices.

Selected works will be published in the next issue of Photography+, our online magazine. One selected artist will receive a year-long Photoworks membership with mentoring meetings from the Photoworks curatorial and learning and engagement team. Our printing partner Spectrum Photographic will award a £200 printing voucher to one selected artist.

Artists will be selected through an open call and the shortlist/final selection of awardees will be decided by an expert panel of curators and artists.
