Street Photography Exhibition

Submissions for entry are closed

We are extremely excited to announce the new Street Beats exhibition opening February 15 2019 and running through to March 7 2019 at Michael’s upstairs gallery in Melbourne, to be officially opened by Julia Coddington.

This curated exhibition is open to all AASPI members. Not a member? Don’t worry, you can become one here.

Street Beats is an open themed street photography exhibition. Submitted images can be taken anywhere (not just Australia) and can push the boundaries of street photography. The key criteria are quality and impact, and entries will be curated with that in mind. So please submit your best images to ensure your image is included. The curation committee’s decision is final, and will not enter into correspondence on the decision. 

The exhibition will be held at Michaels Camera store, cnr Elizabeth and Lonsdale streets, Melbourne. Submit your entry via email, and Michaels will print all images, so there will be no printing or framing required by you. It doesn’t get much easier to exhibit.

You can submit up to three images, and up to one image will be accepted for the exhibition. The curation committee reserves the right to accept more than one if it feels the exhibition will be enhanced. 

How to enter: Entries should be submitted to by 25th January 2019. Please include your name, image title and location. Files should be TIFF or high res jpeg, and able to be printed to A2 size.  Landscape orientation is preferred.

Changes to artwork or titles will not be accepted after works have been submitted.

Printing: Printing will be managed by Michaels Camera Store. All images will be printed on fine art paper. No printing or framing required by you.

Cost: The cost per image will be $55, which is to cover printing and marketing.
