Here’s a full overview of the current EXHIBITIONS / EVENTS / ARCHIVES for Postcards from Great Britain. This page will be updated regularly as exhibitions, events and locations are added. Entries will be accepted until 31 December 2020 – enter here.
Postcards from Great Britain is a largescale project from Shutter Hub, inviting photographers to share their visions of British culture through photographic images and create conversations and exchange.
Pop-up exhibitions will be held in locations across Europe, with related events, showcasing thousands of postcard-sized images. Every image submitted to Postcards from Great Britain will be collated into a digital and print catalogue, to be housed in libraries and archives around the world, and 100 images will be selected for a collectable postcard set.
In a significant time in European history this project sets out to document and share aspects of British culture, spanning all genres of photography, and collating images which include social, political, historical, traditional and observational responses. We’ve lined up some exciting and varied locations across Europe, and we’ll be tailoring the exhibitions to each venue, sharing as many images as possible.
Due to COVID-19 many exhibitions have had to be cancelled, plans canned, or postponed. We’re responding to the situation with our pop-up exhibition plan, and you can read the exciting news here: POSTCARDS FROM GREAT BRITAIN: Reaching Out / Staying In
