We are thrilled to be supporting YEARBOOK, an initiative by Shutterhub to support photographers in the industry, following the highly successful first edition in 2020. YEARBOOK 2021 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.
Shutter Hub are asking for entries from anyone who would like a bit of a promotional boost, no matter your background or education. There’s no theme, but they’d encourage you to think of it like a graduate show – an opportunity to promote your best work. Keep in mind that due to the scale of this project they won’t be able to include full series of images from all entrants, but there will be a link from your name to your website or social media (you’ll decide), so viewers will be able to link through to see more of your work.
All valid entries will have at least one image included per person, on the ShutterHub website, which reaches over 20,000 people per month alongside promotion through the newsletter. We will of course share to our networks too!
100 images will be selected to be included in a printed publication that will be sent out to industry specialists and agencies and available to buy via the ShutterHub website.
Deadline 22nd July 2021
