Bath Photography Festival 2018

In association with ‘Fringe Arts Bath Festival’ we bring you the first ‘Bath Photography Festival’. The aim of the festival is to promote photography as a way of communicating ideas and thoughts. Bath has a rich photographic heritage; it is the home of the Royal Photographic Society and the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey is only 15 miles away.


Real / Unreal


We are bombarded with photographic imagery every day, through news channels, social media, posters, signs and product labels. These images can inspire us, make us question and influence us. However, are these images real or portraying the truth?

Ever since the photography was invented, images have been doctored. The media lends itself to many editing processes; this allows the photographer to change what they see and therefore the viewer’s perception.


Call out

We would like to invite photographers to submit a series of images that respond to the theme, ‘Real / Unreal’. This is a chance to promote and share your work in Bath.


Image Submission

Please send us up to six images alongside a brief 250-word supporting statement. The images must be saved in the following format:

  • Selection Image Size: 1200pix (longest side), JPG file.
  • Naming: Your name, image size cm and title of work, e.g. Your.Name-60×40-Title.jpg
