We’re pleased to be supporting Exposure Photography Festival in Canada again in 2022 by offering the Shutter Hub Emerging Photographer Award. The recipient of the award will be receive a Shutter Hub Membership, 1-to-1 mentorship session with Creative Director Karen Harvey, and a feature on the Shutter Hub website.

In 2021 we gave the Shutter Hub Emerging Photographers Showcase Award to Louie Villanueva, who said, ‘I am honoured to be the recipient of the Shutter Hub Emerging Photographer Award. Shutter Hub’s dedication to supporting and exhibiting creative photographers is an aspirational affair, spreading a kind-of gospel I’ve embraced for myself, the tenet of photography.’

Each year the Exposure Photography Festival presents the Emerging Photographers Showcase. The exhibition celebrates the rich talent of early-career practitioners who are based in the province of Alberta, Canada. The exhibition offers an important professional development opportunity for Alberta-based photographers whilst providing them a gateway into the industry. The exhibition presents a broad range of works, including photojournalism and photocollage, abstract and politically engaged photography, and works that embrace social and individual experience, as well as visual explorations of identity and personal narratives.

The call for entries is open until 10 September 2021, and the exhibition opens in February 2022. Find out more here.
