CALL FOR ENTRIES: Ways of Seeing – Women and Photography in Scotland

We’ve teamed up with National Trust for Scotland, Glasgow Women’s Library, and the Trust’s Tenement House to create a two-part exhibition, Ways of Seeing, spotlighting Women and Photography in Scotland, in response to the National Trust for Scotland’s Second Morton Photography Symposium.

The first exhibition will be as part of National Trust for Scotland’s Second Morton Photography Symposium, to be held on Thursday 02 April 2020 at Glasgow Women’s Library (with an evening reception from 5-7pm)

The second exhibition will run for two months from 01 May – 30 June at the Tenement House, Glasgow. With an opening reception event on Friday 01 May 2020.

Through Ways of Seeing, Shutter Hub aims to bring together the work of women photographers in, and from, Scotland, and asks them ‘What are you looking at now?’

We are looking for standalone, and series of, images to exhibit, and you can submit work on any theme. To be eligible for these exhibitions you must identify as a Scottish woman, a woman with Scottish heritage, or woman living in Scotland.

All work will be considered and as always, we’ll aim to share as much as we can. We are especially interested to see work that relates to the Second Morton Photography Symposium themes (which you can find here).

We’ll be using the Shutter Hub signature newspaper-print style and teaming up with Newspaper Club to print both exhibitions (to get an idea of what this can look like check this out, and this). We’ll also be projecting images at Glasgow Women’s Library so we can ensure we show as much work at the symposium as possible.


Enter up to 10 images (single images, or series).
Entry Fees: Free for Shutter Hub members / £35 for non-members.

Once you’ve entered there are no further fees to take part – if your work is selected we’ll print, promote, deliver and install everything for you. These conditions of entry allow exhibitors to save on print, framing and courier fees which we hope encourages wider participation in our international exhibitions.

Deadline for entries: 5pm GMT 02 March 2020
