SHUTTER HUB OPEN 2020 AMSTERDAM

© Jayne Lloyd

After the amazing success of the Shutter Hub OPEN 2018 at the Old Truman Brewery,  we encored the exhibition at Amsterdam’s 5&33 Gallery. The exhibition took us through into early 2019 and was a huge success, showcasing 150 photographers and over 200 full tabloid sized newspaper prints, it was celebrated for the high standard of photography and democratic approach.

In 2020 we’ve been invited back. Our provisional dates were for June into July, but we’re aware this needs to be very flexible, and we’re working closely with the gallery to get it right. We’re going ahead with this call for entries as planned, and we’re working to our original deadlines for now. When the time is right we’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

The Shutter Hub OPEN 2020 will bring together international photographers in a selected exhibition and promote the future of photography through diverse and creative imagery.

We’ve teamed up with Newspaper Club to produce the exhibition. We’ll fill the space with our best newspaper print exhibition – punchy and democratic, transforming the gallery and covering the walls at 5&33.  It’s an excellent space, renowned for its dynamic cultural programme and situated in a prime location (directly opposite the Central Station).

Our OPEN exhibition is open to everyone. Enter the OPEN and have the chance to exhibit the work that you think best promotes you and your practice. The theme is ‘Open’, and we mean that. We’re inviting you to enter up to 6 images – we want to see a diverse selection of styles and subjects and bring them together in an exhibition like no other.

 

As always there’ll be an award for the ‘Best in Show’, where viewers will get to vote for their favourite photograph from the exhibition. This is much more about audience participation that it is about big prizes, but it’s a fun and engaging way to involve more people in responding to photography.

This truly is a brilliant opportunity, and we’re absolutely delighted to be able to share it!

 


 

Deadline for entries: 15 May 2020  (5pm BST)

Enter up to 6 images (single images, or series).

Entry fees: 
Members: £18 (up to 6 images)
Non-members: £35 (up to 6 images)

Once you’ve entered there are no further fees to take part – if your work is selected we’ll print, promote, deliver and install everything for you. These conditions of entry allow exhibitors to save on print, framing and courier fees which we hope encourages wider participation in our international exhibitions.
