About


At Loupe and The Brick Lane Gallery, we’re proud to promote emerging artists. This year we’ve joined forces to create ‘Another Graduate Show’ giving students and recent graduates the chance to have their work exhibited in a group exhibition at the Brick Lane Gallery in London, free of charge.

We realise the importance of giving new photographers a platform, and yet we’re also aware of the financial burden and stress of self-funded grad shows. Our answer is to offer up to 10 outstanding photographers the chance to exhibit their work in Loupe’s own Graduate Show, with no costs whatsoever. This includes no fee for submissions, and thanks to our friends at creativehub, no printing costs either.

To make our open call as inclusive as possible, we also invite anyone studying for qualifications prior to University, those from non-photographic courses, and those who have studied within the last two years.

To provide exposure for as many photographers as possible, we will be selecting a short list from the submissions. These shortlisted photographers will have the opportunity to sell their work through the Another Graduate Show online print shop, provided by creativehub.

Just like our in-print magazine, we welcome submissions from photographers working in any genre and format of photography. You will have your work seen by our handpicked panel of industry judges who will select our shortlist and final exhibiting photographers.

Deadline: Midnight Sunday 19th May

The final deadline for submissions is Sunday 19th May 2019 at Midnight. Judging will commence straight after the deadline. The judges will select a shortlist, and up to 10 winning photographers who will exhibit at The Brick Lane Annexe Gallery.
