INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION 162

The RPS International Photography Exhibition (IPE) celebrates photography from across the globe. Each year, the touring exhibition is selected from a worldwide open-call, encouraging submissions from international photographers of all levels. Alongside the opportunity to exhibit, £4,000 is awarded to support future photographic projects.

The 162nd edition of this historic exhibition, opens at RPS House, Bristol, in early 2020. We are very grateful to both theprintspace and the 2019 selection panel for their support of the IPE.
