YEARBOOK was launched in 2020 as an answer to all the canceled graduate shows, and uncertainty about when events of that size and nature would be able to resume. We at Shutter Hub thought about what these shows mean for those involved, and what they were missing by not having them. In many ways they echo the ethos of Shutter Hub exhibitions – group shows of work by many varied photographers, promoted to the photography world, attended by industry experts, other photographers’ networks and potential employers. We decided to do what we could to have a positive impact for everyone, and not just for graduates. It was a huge success, with photographers gaining valuable new connections, opportunities and a real sense of community – it was something special to be part of, together!
We’re really pleased to announce that YEARBOOK is back for 2021 and we are inviting all photographers to get involved again!
Whether you are a graduate, self-taught, graduated a really long time ago, under 30, over 30, emerging, emerged or not even sure what emerging means, this is for you. If you’re a photographer looking for a way to get more eyes on your work, we’d like to help you reach new audiences through YEARBOOK.
Just like last year, YEARBOOK will be a group exhibition online, promoted to people working within the photography industry, with the chance to be selected for a printed publication going out to industry specialists and agencies and a series of YEARBOOK Awards. Have a look at last year’s exhibition here, printed publication here and the 2020 YEARBOOK Awards here.
You don’t have to be a Shutter Hub member to take part, but if you’d like to find out about all the benefits of being a Shutter Hub member you can do so here.
This is your graduate show, whether you’ve just graduated, never graduated, or can’t even remember that far back!
Deadline for entries: 22 July 2021 (5pm BST)
