SIE 2020 now open for entries

Welcome to our 107th annual international competition
Closing date: 9 Feb 2020

The Southampton Camera Club was formed in 1896 and now runs one of the largest and oldest international photographic salons in the United Kingdom. Our 2019 International Exhibition attracted entries from over 50 countries around the world and SIE 2020 is the 107th anniversary of this prestigious event.

Our exhibition is run under the patronage of La Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique (FIAP), the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and the Global Photographic Union (GPU).

At the discretion of the judges, it is our intention to issue a total of over 200 awards. In each class, these will include FIAP, PSA and GPU Gold medals, 2 other PSA or GPU medals, 6 Southampton Camera Club medals plus a number of Certificates of Merit and Ribbons. An additional Medal - 1 per class - will be awarded by our Chairman. The entrant with the highest overall acceptance total will win the FIAP Blue Badge for Best Author.

As usual, entrants to the Smethwick International Exhibition (which closed on 13/11/2019) were able to select the option to have their prints forwarded to us, thus saving on postage costs. The Southampton entry procedure allows such entrants to indicate that their prints will be arriving via Smethwick.
