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 2017 International Exhibition attracted entries from nearly 60 countries around the world and SIE 2018 is the 105th 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).

At the discretion of the judges, it is our intention to issue a total of over 200 awards. In each class, these will include a FIAP Gold medal, 4 other FIAP, PSA or RPS medals, 6 Southampton Camera Club medals, plus a number of Certificates of Merit and Ribbons. An additional Medal - 1 per class - will be awarded by our Chairman. 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 09/11/2017) 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.
