RPS IPE 161 selection day

29 June 2018

Region: Headquarters

The final stage of the RPS International Photography Exhibition 161 took place last week, with the selection panel viewing prints of all 594 shortlisted images over two days at RPS headquarters in Bath.

The selection panel made up of Karen Knorr, Jack Latham, Christiane Monarchi, Aaron Schuman and Jon Tonks worked well as a team, discussing and debating their opinions, considering technical qualities, aesthetics and context of images to form an exciting exhibition of striking, beautiful and strong images which will tour the UK throughout 2019.

All shortlisted photographers were notified whether their work has been selected for the IPE 161 exhibition in this final round on Wednesday 27 June.

We look forward to publicly announcing the selected photographers and the award winners in September, with press coverage and a feature in the award-winning RPS Journal.

Exhibition updates will be posted online at: rps.org/competitions/ipe-161
