Documentary Photography Open 2022 – Our Environment

Feb 19, 2022   -   Apr 30, 2022

The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon are excited to announce the theme Our Environment for the Documentary Photography Open 2022. Held during February to April in the temporary exhibition gallery the Open is free to enter with a public prize of £300.

In the wake of COP26 and with the effects of climate change in people’s minds the theme Our Environment asks photographers to document what we have to lose in this beautiful part of the world. Images should document your favourite environment, whether social, cultural or natural.

The exhibition provides a platform for everyone with an interest in photography from camera phone enthusiasts to established contemporary photographers.  The museum hopes to inspire photographers, offer valuable exposure and help keep the tradition of photography alive in North Devon.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 11th February

The Documentary Photography Open is kindly sponsored by Jamaica Press
