Calling ALL photographers!

Do you have a camera? A story? A memory? 

Our second exhibition will be focused on raising money and awareness for mental health.

We are a network of photographers and storytellers committed to helping those on the other side of the lens. We're calling for all photographers, professional or not, to submit their work to our latest exhibition, focused on the theme: MIND.

All entries will be judged by a panel of influential names from the industry. The finalists selected will then go on to be exhibited at the Blue Shop Cottage in Camberwell. The finalists' prints will be sold in a limited edition in support of our chosen mental health organisation: Head Talks.

BLUE SHOP COTTAGE

Our Mind Exhibition will be held over 4 days and nights at the Blue Shop Cottage, an intimate space in Denmark Hill, London. The photos will be on display every night, and will be available to purchase, with the money going towards our chosen charity and the photographer. There will be live music, spoken word, talks and much more.


HEAD TALKS

We will be partnering up with Head Talks for our upcoming 'Mind' exhibition.

Every one of us will be touched by mental illness at some point in our life, either directly or through someone who is close to us. Head Talks believe there is no single path to mental wellbeing and that people can be helped in finding what works for them through information, inspiration and discussion.

By hosting short talks with psychiatrists, academics, yogis, authors, meditation experts, politicians, nutritionists, those who have struggled with and met the challenge of mental illness, and many others with a keen interest in the mind, Head Talks wants to enable each of us to build our own personal toolbox to support mental wellbeing and stay mentally fit.

By bringing these thoughts and discussions into the open, they aim to help lift the stigma that surrounds mental illness.
