SIE 2017 now open for entries

Welcome to our 104th annual international competition
Closing date: 12 February 2017

The Southampton Camera Club was formed in 1896 and now runs one of the largest and oldest international photographic salons in the United Kingdom. Our 2016 International Exhibition attracted entries from nearly 60 countries around the world and SIE 2017 is the 104th anniversary of this prestigious event.

Our exhibition is run under the patronage of La Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique (FIAP), the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and the Royal Photographic Society (RPS).

It is our intention to award in excess of 25 awards in each class for SIE 2017. At the discretion of the judges, these will include a FIAP gold medal, 4 other FIAP, PSA or RPS medals, 6 Southampton Camera Club medals, plus a number of FIAP or PSA ribbons and Southampton CC certificates of merit. The entrant with the highest overall acceptance total will win the FIAP Blue Badge for Best Author.

As usual, entrants to the Smethwick International Exhibition (which closed on 10 Nov 2016) were able to select the option to have their prints forwarded to us, thus saving on postage costs. The Southampton entry procedure allows such entrants to indicate that their prints will be arriving via Smethwick.
