Documentary Photography Open 2022 – Our Environment

Nov 15, 2021   -   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 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 can be a documentation of your favorite environment albeit social, cultural or natural.

Providing a platform for everyone with an interest in photography from camera phone enthusiasts to established contemporary photographers the museum hopes to inspire photographer’s with valuable exposure and enhanced practice keeping the tradition of photography alive in North Devon.

Applications will be open on the website from January 2022, this year’s theme and guidelines are available here.

Good Luck!
