International Digital Salon 2023

The Edinburgh Photographic Society has a rich history, running one of the oldest Print Salons in the world since 1861. Following the success of our First International Digital Salon in 2021 and our 159th International Print Salon in 2023, we embarked on our Second International Digital Salon in June 2023.

We have had an overwhelming response to our 2023 call for entries with a total of 4522 images entered from 370 photographers from 43 countries. We are truly honoured by their participation and the exceptional quality of the submissions.

Our esteemed panel of international judges faced the challenging task of choosing the best entries. The judging process was carried out remotely using Zoom, with separate Jury Panels for the Open Colour, Open Mono, Nature, Landscape, Creative and Photo Travel Sections. It was not an easy process, as there were countless outstanding images that deserved recognition. We regretfully had to leave behind many exceptional photographs, but we extend our heartfelt congratulations to all those who received awards and acceptances.

A public exhibition of all Salon Award Winners will be held at Edinburgh Photographic Society’s premises at 68 Great King Street, Edinburgh EH3 6QU, Scotland during the following dates and times:

Thursday 28th December 2023 11 am to 3 pm
Friday 29th December 2023 11 am to 3 pm
Sunday 31st December 2023 11 am to 1 pm
Monday 1st January 2024 11 am to 1 pm
Wednesday 3rd January 2024 11 am to 3 pm
Saturday 6th January 2024 11 am to 3 pm
Sunday 7th January 2024 11 am to 3 pm

The exhibition is open to all and entry is free.

In due course, short AV presentations of all of the award winning images in each genre will be available on the Salon website at

We look forward to running our 160th Print Salon and our Third International Digital Salon in 2024.

Exhibition Catalogue
A Flip Book copy of the Catalogue can be viewed and downloaded until 15th December and a PDF version of the catalogue is also available.
We would like to give a special thanks to all who entered their first international exhibition and achieved their first acceptance or, even better, won awards. Your dedication and talent are truly commendable.
We are incredibly grateful to MyPhotoClub and our esteemed patrons and sponsors viz. PSA, FIAP, GPU, PAGB and SPF for supporting us in this endeavour.  We would also like to express our gratitude to all the individuals who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this exhibition possible. In particular, the exhibition would have been impossible without the support provided by our international judges and MyPhotoClub, particularly Colin Woods, who helped us navigate the digital landscape swiftly and smoothly.
Once again, we extend our sincerest appreciation and thanks to all the Salon participants, patrons, judges and supporters and sincerely hope that you enjoy browsing through the catalogue.
