TEN

To celebrate Shutter Hub’s 10th year, we’re inviting photographers to be a part of our online exhibition exploring the theme of ‘TEN’.

Hold your breath and count to ten… or don’t. We’re open to your interpretations, literal, metaphorical or nostalgic.

You might share something from your archive – what’s happened for you in the past 10 years? Moments you’d like to commemorate, some that you’d like to forget. A hidden message, an obvious revelation, multiples of ten, 10am, a ten-second idea or a ten-minute exposure.

TEN aims to showcase a range of creative and diverse images widely exploring the number ten, and what it means to you. The possibilities are endless.

 

In the run up to the exhibition, we’ll also 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.

We’re making this opportunity affordable for all photographers, there are no set entry fees for TEN, 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.

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: 11 April 2024 (5pm UK time)

Each photographer can submit up to 10 images. These can be from a series or individual images.

Images - TEN

File Upload *

Maximum file size: 5MB

Please upload a .jpg file 2000px wide, 300ppi, in sRGB colour profile, no larger than 5MB. All submitted files must be named with the photographer's name and title of work e.g. lastname_firstname_title_of_image.jpg It is important that this is correct and each is unique as this is how we will let you know which images have been accepted. Files that are not labelled correctly may not be accepted.
To make your image accessible to more people, including those who are blind or visually impaired, please describe your image - we will add this as Alt text. This should be a description of what is shown in the image for those who are unable to see it, rather than an explanation of process or context, e.g. 'Photograph of a red car parked in the middle of a field of grass, with a pigeon flying in the blue sky overhead'.

Your work

Please provide a paragraph about your image/s or project (if your work is accepted for the exhibition, this information may also be used for publicity materials)
Have you used AI to make any of the images you've submitted?

Pay what you can

There are no set entry fees, 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.
