Call for submissions: Shutter Hub Photographers at Cambridge University 2019


Shutter Hub has been invited back to Cambridge University in April 2019 to curate an exhibition in partnership with Art at the ARB and provide a platform for four individual photographers to showcase new and experimental bodies of work.

Photographers are invited to submit their projects to be considered for the exhibition with Shutter Hub and Art at the ARB. The exhibition will run from 28 March – 3 May 2019.

Four individual photographers will be selected for the exhibition and given guidance and support throughout the process from selection and promotion to curation and installation. Art at the ARB will provide a full Private View event for the exhibition.

This is an open call, the theme of work is entirely up to the entrant, and the work can have been shown previously.

This opportunity is free to enter and open only to Shutter Hub members.



Apply by emailing [email protected] marking your email ‘Cambridge 2019 Submission – *Your full name*’

Please include all of the following:
Up to 500 words about the project
Information about you, CV or artists statement
Link to Shutter Hub portfolio
6-10 images sent by WeTransfer or Dropbox link.

Please read the terms and conditions below before submitting your application.

The deadline for entries is 5pm BST on Friday 11th January 2019
Those invited to exhibit will be informed and announced by Monday 21st January 2019

In order to create further opportunities for exposure, and as a way for the curators to share work that they feel is interesting and relevant, we’ll also be selecting work from the submissions to be shared online via the Shutter Hub blog during the entry process.

We are glad to have this opportunity to further develop our relationship with Art at the ARB at Cambridge University, and look forward to building on the success of our previous exhibition programme with them, Artificial Things.
