Have you noticed that we're open for submissions? 

That's right, you could have the chance to exhibit your photography at the Carlisle Photo Festival.
Doesn't matter where you are stationed either, we are very much an international festival.

Carlisle Photo Festival Returns!
After the huge success of last year’s inaugural event, the Carlisle Photo Festival is returning to the city for 2013 from 15th - 21st of April.

The Carlisle Photo Festival is now open to submissions from photographers for the 2013 event.

The Carlisle Photo Festival organisers are seeking all types of photography work to be submitted from amateurs, professionals and photo enthusiasts.

The final deadline for submissions is 15 March 2013.

The seven day celebration of the craft of photography will be open to everyone with a passion for visual art - professionals, amateurs and students and, of course, the photo-loving public.

Inspiring and eclectic work attracted over 1500 visitors in 2012 and this year’s event is set to be even bigger.

The Carlisle Photo Festival 2013 includes the addition of a main exhibition in the Carlisle town centre as well as two gallery spaces.

Established and emerging local and international photographers will have the opportunity to showcase the very best of their work to a wide audience in the artistic and historical city of Carlisle.

One of last year’s featured photographers, Eleanor De Chastelain Simpson, went on to win the 2012 University of Cumbria annual Creative Travel Award following her exhibition at the Carlisle Photo Festival.
