Colour Factory Photographic Award 2012

Colour Factory Photographic Award 2012




Colour Factory is calling out for entries in the new annual Colour Factory Photographic Award. We encourage early career artists to participate in the opportunity of winning a solo exhibition at CF Gallery from 6th December 2012 – 26th January 2013. The prize covers all expenses of the gallery and includes fine art photographic printing (not framing).

The term photographic refers to the process of printing chromogenic ‘C-type’ prints. The submitted images must be made in camera. Photographers are invited to submit 5 A4 printed images from a series of work created within the last two years. Up to 10 images may be submitted, the remaining images are accepted as files. Entries submitted as files only are ineligible for the prize. The judges will be looking for images that are technically and conceptually strong, and form a cohesive body of work.


 Entries close: Monday 15 October

Winner announced: Monday 12 November

Exhibition dates: 6 December–26 January 2013
