Winner of the BenQ YEARBOOK Award 2022 © Giuseppe Cipriani

YEARBOOK is Shutter Hub’s annual directory of photographers, open to all photographers, whatever stage they are at in their career.

In previous years we’ve produced a printed publication, but as the YEARBOOK has grown, and the page count of the publication has its limits, we want to make sure everyone involved has an equal chance to be seen. In 2023 we will focus on the online exhibition, sharing it far and wide, and making it available as a resource for industry specialists and agencies across the globe.


YEARBOOK 2023 will be:

A group exhibition online promoted to people working within the photography industry – every entrant will have at least one image included and a series of YEARBOOK Awards with prizes from major industry organisations including Metro Imaging and Vintage Camera Hut, with more to be announced soon.


Have a look at last year’s exhibition here, and the 2022 YEARBOOK Awards here.


We’re asking for entries from all photographers, no matter your background or education. There’s no theme, take the opportunity to promote your best work.

Each photographer will have one or two images in the online exhibition, and there will be a link from your name to your website or social media (you’ll decide), so viewers will be able to link through to see more of your work.

We will review all entered images but ultimately you should enter images that stand alone to represent your style, skills and the work you’d like to do more of as best they can.

The exhibition will be online, so it can be easily shared and accessed, in the same format as last year’s exhibition, which you can see here. All valid entries will have at least one image included per person, on our website, which reaches over 20,000 people per month. We’ll promote the show through our newsletter and social media with an audience of over 15,000 and to everyone we know who wants to see new photography!


“Shutter Hub have created a great way for photographers to advertise their work properly – through a curated (and exquisitely presented!) online exhibition […] For picture editors, this is going to be a cheat code for looking for photographers in the future.”

– Tom Clazie Flynn, Picture Editor at Unicef UK


There are no set entry fees for YEARBOOK, we’re asking you to ‘pay what you can’. If you’re lucky enough to be in employment, or getting financial support, we hope you’ll help us support those who aren’t.

We’re making this opportunity affordable for all photographers, but it isn’t cheap to produce. Please help support us by sharing what we do. We receive no external grants or funding, but we’re determined to do what we can to keep photography open to all.


You don’t have to be a Shutter Hub member to take part, but if you’d like to find out about all the benefits of being a Shutter Hub member you can do so here.


Deadline for entries: 7 July 2023 (5pm UK time)
