International Awards for 158th Edinburgh International 2022

The Edinburgh International Exhibition of Photography 

Edinburgh Photographic Society has organised an open exhibition since its founding in 1861. It is now one of the foremost photographic exhibitions in the world attracting entries from photographers worldwide. This is an open exhibition, anyone amateur or professional, may enter this print only exhibition. There are only two categories Mono and Colour Prints of any genre. Only a small percentage of the many submitted are accepted. Getting an acceptance at Edinburgh is sought after and many photographers submit each year hoping for success. The ensuing Exhibition is displayed in Edinburgh Photographic Society’s premises in August, during the Edinburgh International Festivals. The exhibition attracts many thousands of visitors each year.

EPS International Digital Exhibition 

In 2020 and 2021, Covid issues caused problems for print handling and judging, when gathering was difficult. Consequenly, we lost two years of the Edinburgh International Exhibition.  This prompted Edinburgh Photographic Society to run an International Digital Exhibition in 2021 which attracted over 3000 entries from across the globe. With the reinstatement of the Edinburgh International in 2022, we did not run an EPS International Digital Exhibition. EPS is running a second EPS Digital International in 2023 and entry is now open until September 30th 2023. The link below will take you to the entry platform for the EPS International Digital  

Visiting the exhibition

 The first EPS International Digital Exhibition in 2021 was due to run during the Edinburgh New Year Festivals. However Scotland introduced additional Covid restrictions affecting that and the exhibition moved briefly on-line. Details of the 2023 International Digital Exhibition will appear here.
