SIE 2015 now open for entries

Welcome to our 102nd annual international competition
Closing date: 8 February 2015

The previous Southampton International Exhibition attracted over 10,000 entries from 66 countries around the world, confirming our position as one of the largest photographic salons in the United Kingdom. We are also one of the oldest camera clubs in the UK, having been founded in 1896.

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).

As usual, it is our intention to award in excess of 25 awards in each class. 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 2014) were able to select the option to have their prints forwarded to us, thus saving on postage costs. The Southampton entry form will allow you to indicate that your prints will be arriving via Smethwick.
