Salon Rules and Entry – 2022

The Solihull Salon of Photography 2022

The Aim.

The aim of The Salon is to showcase about one hundred Visual Art prints that have been produced by photographers from the UK.
The selected prints will be exhibited for public viewing in the Courtyard Gallery in Solihull Library (The Core) B91 3RG.
The Salon is independent and will not be aligned to exhibition bodies.
The three Selectors will be Fellows of The Royal Photographic Society and each will award a Selector’s Certificate in each category. There will also be a “Best Print” Certificate for each category.
