RPS International Print Exhibition 159 Coming Soon: Tom Blachford

'Abrigo Corner' by Tom Blachford 

The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition 159 opens at PHOTOBLOCK London from 13-18 October 2016. Launched in 1854 and now in its 159th edition, it is the longest-running exhibition of its kind in the world.

This year’s exhibition features an eclectic mix of work by 75 photographers from 16 countries, carefully selected by a panel of experts, and will provide a fascinating insight into the range and diversity of photography today.

Taking the form of a competition, with entries submitted from both amateur and professional photographers throughout the world, The IPE finalists and medal winners were selected by a panel made up of social documentary photographer Dougie Wallace, Brighton Biennial Photo Festival director, Celia Davies, Director of Glasgow’s Street Level Photoworks Malcolm Dickson, Picture Editor for The Sunday Times Magazine Russ O’Connell and photography writer and editor Gemma Padley.

For the first time in the exhibition’s long history, all four medal winners are women. UK photographers Carolyn Mendelsohn, Polly Braden and Poem Baker secured the Gold, Silver & Bronze awards and Russian photographer Anna Shustikova won the under-30s Gold award. The awards will be presented at the PHOTOBLOCK opening event on 13 October.

The four medal-winning prints, among all 96 finalist entries, will be exhibited in the opening exhibition at PHOTOBLOCK, part of Photomonth East London Photography Festival, before touring to venues and photography festivals throughout the UK.
