To coincide with this year’s Northern Light conference, Sheffield Hallam University are holding an exhibition of contemporary landscape photography, at the Yorkshire Artspace, exploring critical issues arising from the photographic representation of the northern landscape.

Artists are invited to submit a single image, relating to the theme of Proximity and Distance.  A wide range of work is welcomed for entry, and we encourage submissions from artists at any stage of their career who are principally concerned with landscape photography.

We emphasise that this exhibition is open to a variety of styles and approaches, and particularly welcome any contributions from artists whose work is centred within a particular geographical location, such as northern Britain, northern Europe, the Nordic countries, Canada, Alaska, Siberia, and Russia.

The accolade of ‘Best in Show’ (accompanied by a prize to the value of £100), will be judged by esteemed photographer John Kippin, Emeritus Professor in Photography at the University of Sunderland.

For further information and to submit work for consideration, please see here.
