This year’s University of Westminster WESTPHOTO Annual Photography Prize – which has ‘Family & The Familiar’ as its theme – promises to be the biggest so far.
The concept of family is constantly changing, with every person forming their own definition. Being familiar gives us confidence and security and is a guarantor for a multi-cultural society. As we learn to negotiate changes and new experiences in our lives the unfamiliar becomes familiar. Through photography we can visualise these changes.
As well as all Westminster photography students, the competition will also be open to those studying photography at the prestigious F+F Schule für Kunst und Mediedesign in Zurich, Switzerland.
The judges are:
Tom Hunter – Artist & Lecturer
Cheryl Newman – Director of Photography at The Telegraph Magazine
Simona Dell’Agli – Artquest
P3 Gallery Space, London, UK
f+F Schule, Zurich, Switzerland
Fenner – The paper people
ONIMAGE – Picture Agency
Hotshoe – Contemporary Photography
