Exibition to mark 30 years of photography training

Press photographers are being invited to submit pictures for a high-profile exhibition celebrating 30 years of photojournalism training.

The National Council for the Training of Journalists is putting together a collection of 50 photos which will go on display in London next June.

NCTJ-trained photographers are now being invited to submit up to two photos for the exhibition, which will run for six weeks.

The NCTJ photography board, which includes chairman Steve Phillips, picture editor at the South Wales Evening Post, Paul Sanders, picture editor at The Times and freelance photographer Rob Rathbone, will choose the final 50 photos.

Fellow board member Paul Delmar, head of press photography and photojournalism at Sheffield College, Norton Centre, said: “This unique opportunity will be a showcase of 30 years of training press photographers and photojournalists by Norton College and the NCTJ.

“The reputations of NCTJ training courses in photography and photojournalism have been built on quality and now photographers who have completed the courses have a chance to exhibit the talent for which they are known.”

All photographers whose work has been chosen to appear will be invited to a special launch event.

To enter photographs for the exhibitions, send no more than two pictures as an email attachment to glen.oldershaw@nctj.com including your name, a brief description of them and a contact phone number.

Entrants must also confirm they have permission from the copyright holder for the photos to be displayed.
