News imageAfter the enormous success of the previous three Summershows, FOTO8 and HOST Gallery are pleased to announce the call for entries for the fourth-annual FOTO8 Summershow: a photographic award, exhibition and print fair. The show will follow in FOTO8’s tradition of supporting and encouraging work by contemporary and independent photographers.
The Entrants
The 2011 Summer Show is open to all photographers from Tuesday 5 April. Details on how to submit will soon be available online via Deadline for all entries is 15 May 2011.
The Exhibition
A panel of judges will choose over 150 images to be displayed at HOST from 8 July – 12 August, where there will be an inspiring variety of framed and mounted images of all shapes and sizes, installed from floor to ceiling. All works included in the show will be available for sale. The print exhibition will kick-off with live music and a street festival taking over Honduras Street, EC1 on Friday 8 July.
The Awards
Once the show is up, an expert team of judges will choose their favourite photograph to be named “Best in Show”. This will be announced during the fourth week of the show and the winner will be awarded £1500. A second award, “The People’s Choice” will be decided from the votes received in the gallery during the show, and presented with a prize of photographic kit.
The 2010 Summer Show
In 2010, over 2,500 images were entered into the Summershow from more than 40 countries. The team at FOTO8, led by the editorial staff at 8 Magazine, shortlisted more than 100 individual works to hang in HOST, during July and August. A cash award of £1500 was presented to the single entry selected as “Best in Show” (Laura Pannack) by a panel of industry experts: Monica Allende of The Sunday Times Magazine, Stefanie Braun of the Photographer’s Gallery, photographer Mark Power, editor and lecturer Colin Jacobson and Harry Hardie, of HOST Gallery. In addition, visitors to the exhibition voted for their favourite, “The People’s Choice”, which was awarded to Jonathan Banks.
