How to Submit

We welcome submissions directly from individuals or through schools, colleges or other groups.

The best way to submit each project is via email to youthshowcase@photoworks.org.uk containing:

* photographer’s name

school/ college or organisation name (if applicable)

* contact e-mail

* a short supporting statement (max 300 words). Tell us what the project’s about and what’s inspired you. But keep it simple! We much prefer straightforward plain language to complicated “artspeak”.

* a shareable link to a dropbox folder containing at least three JPG images per project. Images should be minimum 1500 px shortest side. (A shareable dropbox link shound end in a zero)

Every month we’ll pick our favourites and share them with our global community of photography lovers.

Sorry, we are unable to give individual feedback on submissions. If you have not been contacted after four weeks you should assume that your project has not been selected this time, but you are welcome (and indeed encouraged) to submit future projects to the Youth Showcase.

If you have any questions about how to submit work to our Youth Showcase please email us.

Good luck.

* Please note: Older photographers should submit via our ShowcaseCurrently showcase submissions are not open to undergraduate photographers.
