Open Doors Gallery is delighted to invite you to submit your projects to OD Photo Prize 2024.

For over a decade now, ODG has dedicated itself to the discovery & mentorship of early career artists working across the full spectrum of contemporary photography. From Kensuke Koike’s sculptural alchemy to Maria Lax’s iconic and cinematic storytelling, right through to pioneers in new areas of photographic art such as Sander Coers. Over the past decade the gallery has exhibited these artists widely through our program of pop–ups and art fairs here in London and beyond. Raising the profiles of our artists… We pride ourselves on discovering and nurturing the best talent out there. OD Photo Prize is an extension of this mission, which looks to widen our search for talent and to help foster long-term relationships with artists more globally.

This year’s Winner will receive an increased cash prize thanks to the continued support of our partners, as well as a listing amongst our roster of artists for at least a year. Whilst all Shortlisted artists will be invited to participate in a group exhibition hosted by Open Doors Gallery in London, November. Read on to find out more.

Artists are also eligible for a variety of awards chosen by our panel of influential industry experts in the field of photography. From having work singled out by each jury member as one of the ‘Judges’s Picks’ to the Metro Mentorship award selected by artist and creative director, Professor Steve MacLeod. This year we are also excited to introduce a new partnership with InCadaques Festival [find out more details below].

There has never been a better time to submit your projects to OD Photo Prize. With more opportunities on offer than ever before and a proven record working with artists, this open call offers a unique platform for emerging and early career artists of all ages, backgrounds & styles… We can’t wait to see your work.

OD Photo Prize was founded by Open Doors Gallery, UK, in 2021.
