The University of Westminister has launched the 6th annual WESTPHOTO photography prize.
Winners of the University of Westminster’s 6th annual WESTPHOTO photography prize will be announced at a private viewing on Wednesday 5 December 2012 at the Ambika P3 Gallery, the University’s contemporary art and architecture space, in central London.
Now in its sixth year, this year WESTPHOTO invited students and alumni from the University of Ulster, Edinburgh Napier University and University of Wales Newport to take part in the competition. This year’s theme is titled ‘State of the Nation’ and it is focused on depicting the current state of affairs and explores the development and progression of our world.
Established in 2007, WESTPHOTO is a picture agency, library, and provider of a full range of professional photographic services which is run by students from the Photography Department at the University of Westminster, one of Europe’s leading schools of photography which offers a diverse and wide range of photographic courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The photography prize was set up in 2007 to celebrate the high quality of critical work produced by young and emerging photographic artists.
Acclaimed professionals from the British Journal of Photography, The Photographers Gallery and Simon Roberts, an internationally recognised British photographer, are among the judges who will be selecting three winners for the single image category and project work category. The judges will also choose twenty shortlisted photographers whose works will be exhibited in London, Belfast, Newport and Edinburgh. Apart from being exhibited, the winners will receive prizes sponsored by Manfrotto, Moo Cards, Bob Books, ONIMAGE and Epson.
