Class of 2015: get your work in a special print issue of BJP

Attention all photography graduates: BJP is looking for the cream of this year's crop to feature in the projects section of our summer issues. Picture shows our August 2014 issue, featuring the work of Nottingham Trent graduate Ben Swanson (left) and Middlesex graduate Johanna Churchill (right)

A call out to final year photography students: British Journal of Photography needs you!

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be featured in a forthcoming special issue of BJP, and you are graduating from a higher education photography course in the UK or Ireland this summer, we want to see your work.

BJP prides itself on spotting new talent, each year giving a platform to emerging photographers graduating from colleges and universities across the UK and Ireland to showcase their work with their peers and photo industry VIPs. The best we see will feature in print in our Projects section in our June, July and August summer editions, and a further number given global exposure across our online and social media platforms, reaching more than half a million people worldwide.

To be considered, simply send a link to your final year work, or attach a maximum of eight low res JPEGs totalling no more than 5MB, to the editor at bjp.editor@bjphoto.co.uk. It is vital that you write into the subject line of the email, ‘Class of 2015’, and that you graduating this summer from a recognised further education course in photography (or photography and related media) from a college or University in the UK or Ireland (though you don’t need to be a British or Irish national).

The first issue featuring graduate work will go on sale in June, coinciding with our fortnight of activities at Free Range in east London, during which we’ll be running talks, presentations and workshops. We will also be featuring the winning work from our Breakthrough Awards, our new contest aimed at photography students and recent graduates, who will have their work printed and shown in our pop-up gallery just off Brick Lane. For full details on how to enter the Breakthrough Awards, which is open to students and graduates all over the world, click through to the dedicated website.
