A representative from Diemar/Noble informed me about this year’s Fitzrovia Photography Prize, so I thought it worth sharing with my readers here. The prizes are superb, and I am hoping to find a couple of hours to spare when I’m in London before the deadline to try to make some frames to submit myself. It would be an amazing opportunity to get a portfolio review from the Gallery, and the rest of the prize packages are just as impressive.
Press Release From Diemar/Noble:
“This year Diemar/Noble Photography, London is pleased to announce The Fitzrovia Photography Prize sponsored by John Lewis, Oxford Street.”
The competition theme is ‘Within a Mile’ i.e. all photographs entered must have been taken within a mile radius of the gallery, which is situated in the heart of London. The competition is currently calling for entries.
Selected works will be exhibited from the 21st July until the 20th August 2011. The competition is being sponsored by John Lewis with prizes for both the winner and two runners up. The deadline for this competition is 25th June 2011 and there is no entry fee!

I received an email from Sophie Henderson, Project Manager for the newly established Migration Museum. She wanted me to publicise this among the participants of the Street Photography Now Project run by The Photographers’ Gallery, for which I am the Community Manager. I offered to share it here also, to reach more people.
They are running a competition jointly with The Guardian newspaper seeking images relating to migration into the UK and emigration from the UK.
The deadline for submissions to the competition is 17th June, 2011. So you have until next Friday to submit your images. Good luck!
This competition is seeking images relating to immigration into the UK, and emigration from the UK. Very sorry to those who have images of other forms of immigration, but this is to seek images in keeping with the remit of The Migration Museum, which is focussed on UK-related migration.
From Sophie Henderson of The Migration Museum:
I wanted to tell you about an exciting new project, headed by former Minister for Immigration Barbara Roche, which aims to establish a new national Migration Museum in the UK. We’ve got a new website at www.migrationmuseum.org.uk.
We are also running a "100 Images of Migration" competition with the Guardian for people to upload images resonant of migration. Images might relate to a personal family history, or to something in the public domain like a banknote printed on Huguenot Portal family paper. Or they could show a tabloid newspaper headline screaming about a nation swamped by immigrants or anything else that speaks of migration.
I wondered whether you or any of the street photography participants might be interested in contributing some images. Images can be uploaded via the Guardian article at www.guardian.co.uk/society/2011/may/04/migration-museum-p… or our website and the competition ends on 17th June 2011. Winning entries will feature in Guardian Weekend Magazine.
