158th Edinburgh International Exhibition of Photography 2022

Welcome to one of the most highly regarded exhibitions in the UK, typically attracting around 3000 entries from all around the world. This salon has been in existence for over 150 years, and during that time has built a strong reputation. We are a print-only exhibition, increasingly rare in these times.

Unlike many print exhibitions, we only accept what we can display, usually 202 prints, thus gaining an acceptance is a high achievement much sought after. All the prints are on display at the Society’s premises during the Edinburgh Festivals in August, maintaining the success of recent years. The Exhibition usually receives over 3000 visitors, many of whom come year after year to view it. All accepted images appear in the catalogue which has had a FIAP 4/5* rating since 2019.

Exhibition Secretary/Chairman: Edith Smith LRPS
