CALL FOR ENTRIES: Your Lens, Your Truth

© Richard Mosse

In collaboration with the Sainsbury Centre art museum in Norwich, and to showcase their exhibition The Camera Never Lies: Challenging images through The Incite Project, we’re inviting photographers to be a part of our online exhibition exploring Your Lens, Your Truth.


The Camera Never Lies: Challenging images through The Incite Project joins the Sainsbury Centre’s six-month long investigation into What Is Truth?

The show explores the influence photography has had on shaping – and in some cases misdirecting – the narrative of major global events, featuring more than 100 works by legendary photographers including Don McCullin, Robert Capa and Dorothea Lange, as well as modern practitioners.


Sometimes seen as superior to text, photographs are now a mainstay of how the media and the public understand events such as war, famine, and celebrity.

If a single photograph of an event is taken through one frame, by one photographer and potentially filtered by one news editor, do you believe photographs can tell the whole truth?

Is what we see in the image the truth of the subject being photographed? Perhaps these photographs turn the camera on you to confront truths within your own life.

We want to see your interpretations of truth through photography.


We’ll be sharing submitted images throughout the call for entries on our social media and blog, so it’s worth entering as soon as you’re ready and making the most of it.


And don’t forget to sign up for a space at our exclusive Meet Up featuring a curator’s talk at the Sainsbury Centre, Norwich on 27 June 2024, 10.30 – 1.30pm. We’ll spend the morning enjoying an exclusive talk and tour of the The Camera Never Lies: Challenging images through The Incite Project exhibition by The Centre’s Chief Curator of Art, Tania Moore, and Curator of Cultural Empowerment, Taf Makwabarara. There will also be time to explore the other temporary exhibitions and permanent collection, as well as a break to enjoy some tea and cake!

Find out more and RSVP here.


The Sainsbury Centre is a world-class art museum with a unique perspective on how art can foster cultural dialogue and exchange.

Just like the Centre works on a ‘pay if and what you can’ model, we’re making this opportunity affordable for all photographers. There are no set entry fees for Your Lens, Your Truth; we’re asking you to pay what you can. Please help support the work we do by sharing this opportunity with other photographers. We receive no external grants or funding, but we’re determined to do what we can to keep photography open to all.


Want to take part? Find out more and enter now.

Deadline for entries: 09 September 2024 (5pm BST)
