Palm* Photo Prize is open internationally to all photographers. The selection process for the exhibition is based on a single image (not complete body of work) and has an emphasis on engaging work of the highest quality.

The organisers, curators and judges will review all submissions to ensure entries adhere to the guidelines and terms & conditions.

From all of the submissions, 100 entries will be selected by Palm* Studios and printed by our sponsor SPECTRUM for the resulting Palm Photo Prize exhibition.

Venue |  East Photographic Gallery | 10-14 Crossway, Dalston, London N16 8HX

The images selected for exhibition will be open for public viewing and available for sale (unless otherwise stated by entrant). All images are printed 15″ (on longest side) and priced by the entrant. 100% of the profit is given back to the artists.
