Photoworks invites submissions from photographers, artists and writers.
Magazine & Showcase
Our magazine has an open submissions policy and invites submissions from photographers and artists using photography. We ask for all submissions to be presented via our online submission process.
Please read the guidelines carefully, follow the instructions, complete the form and then submit your selection of images.
Whilst we welcome your submission, due to the large numbers we receive, we are unable to give individual feedback. We will contact you if we wish to publish your work or discuss it further.
We are grateful for the many submissions we receive but sadly we're only able to publish in printed form a very small percentage of the quality work we find. Our online gallery Showcase allows us to share the best of this work with a wider audience and to support emerging talent.
If you would like to write for the magazine please email Celia Davies your proposal with a small sample of your writing to date.
Photoworks commissions are conceived to give artists opportunities to make new work in unique contexts that are both highly appropriate to and challenging for their practice. The commissions are often site-related, and, in the spirit of collaboration, involve a bringing together of different areas of expertise and experience – across disciplines, artforms and social contexts. Artists Photoworks has worked with include: Alec Soth, Rinko Kawauchi, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Joachim Schmid, Anna Fox, Sophy Rickett, Jem Southam, Susan Lipper, and Bettina Von Zwehl amongst others.
Our commissioning programme is devised by our curatorial team and planned up to two years in advance, with projects arising from direct invitations to artists. Generally we do not develop unsolicited proposals for our projects.
If however you would like to make a project proposal, a member of the Photoworks team will review it individually. Due to the number of submissions we receive, we regret that Photoworks is not able to offer individual feedback.
