British Photographic Assignments Launched02 May 2020 | Steve Thirsk
Recently launched is the new 'British Photographic Assignments', open to all British-based photographers and those of British nationality the world over.
Welcoming work for public discussion on the theme of the global pandemic, photographers can submit imagery that informs people of how the situation has affected their life. It is open to interpretation depending on each photographer’s process and practice. The venture is aimed at celebrating the variety and creativity found throughout the British still imaging sector while informing and inspiring the public during these trying times.
Photographers are asked to submit between 5-15 captioned images with an accompanying descriptive text of up to 400 words.
Hugo Donnithorne-Tait, Director of The British Photography Awards, said: “The Assignments platform will be an important commons with huge potential for the public to experience British photographic work, no matter the level, scale or approach. It is open to everyone, from students to professional photojournalists. Each year we shall explore a new theme together and celebrate the images at our annual gala – this cycle to be on the 17th of February 2021 at The Dorchester, Park Lane.
Each assignment submitted can be dedicated to an individual, collective or institution (i.e. our NHS key workers) for widespread publication on the BPA channels as well as national press and media releases.
