Dark Corners Competition

Tags: , , , , , , Competition, Contest, Dark Corners, Exhibition, Photo, Photographer, Photography

There’s nothing like a little challenge to get those little grey cells working. Photographers can see the world in black and white or in colour, in light and shadow, shapes and textures.  

American Photographer Berenice Abott once said that in photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated.  

And that’s exactly what the Museum of London wants to see, as they call for entries to their Dark Corners competition, in collaboration with the British Journal of Photography. 

The competition challenges participants to explore what goes on in London, one of the world’s biggest cities after dark.  

Winners will have their work exhibited at the Museum of London alongside the major exhibition London Nights, featuring work from the likes of Chloe Dewe Mathews, Bruce Davidson, Brian Griffin and Tom Hunter.  

They will also receive coverage from the British Journal of Photography, bespoke framed prints of their exhibited work that is included in the show, and a private tour of London Nights by the exhibition’s curator. As a further treat, they will be invited to the VIP launch. 

Entry to the competition is free for anyone over the age of 18, and you can take part from anywhere in the world. 

Submitted images must have been shot in London in the last 3 years. Your submissions can be standalone images or taken from a project or work in progress. 

If you have any questions, please email comp@1854.media with “Dark Corners” in the subject line, or click here to enter.
