It’s ‘Time to Think’ and we are absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to create the main exhibition for Festival Pil’Ours 4th Edition and help deliver events that will form the basis for the Festival’s progression and inspiration.

It’s not only time to think about the festival, it’s direction, and what is needed, but also an opportunity for us to think and reflect on the work of women in the 21st Century. We welcome the opportunity to celebrate contemporary work by female photographers today.

Last year Because We Can brought out recurring themes of current affairs, loss, strength, empowerment – all from women who may not have yet met, but share some of the same interests and energy. Let’s build on that.

We are looking for work by female identifying photographers – it’s as simple as that. Take the notion of ‘Time to Think’ and run with it, as broadly and as freely as you want to! No boundaries, just your best work, show us your vision of the world, share your view with the audience, put your projects out there to be seen and discussed  (the only constraint is it must be suitable for family viewing).



Each entrant can submit up to six images. These can be from a series or individual images. All submitted files must be named with photographers name and title of work.

We’ve subsidised the fee for Shutter Hub members to take part. The conditions of entry allow exhibitors to save on print, framing and courier fees which we hope encourages wider participation in our international exhibitions.

Please keep in mind that work entered needs to be suitable for a family audience.

The deadline for entries is 5pm BST on Monday 20th May 2019



Members £5 per image
Non members £10 per image
Each entrant can submit up to six works as 6x4in 300dpi uncompressed jpeg digital files.
