The Glasgow Gallery of Photography's mission is to advance the arts, heritage and cultural sector through exhibitions of photographic works as a means for artistic, community and personal expression.

The Glasgow Gallery of Photography is running a 6 week long exhibition starting in August called Nature. Nature surrounds us, not just out in the wilderness but also claiming a presence in urban areas too. For this exhibition we want to see how you explore the theme of Nature in your photography, how we interact with it and how it interacts with us, where it has a commanding presence or where it is fighting to be seen.

Nature is an open call for photographers to submit up to 8 images that meet the theme of Nature.

Photographers who are selected will have their work displayed in a 6 week long exhibition in our gallery, with their work also appearing online in an online gallery on our website.

All participants that are selected to take part in the exhibition will receive a digital certificate of participation.

We want to see work from both emerging and established photographers. You do not need to be a professional photographer to participate as we believe that photography is for everyone.


Both Scottish and International photographers are welcome.
