Further questions are listed below regarding eligibility, but if having read these you are still unsure, please contact the exhibition organisers, Parker Harris.

If your work is straight forward film or photographic work, i.e. traditional photographic prints created from various subjects and themes, then we would advise you that they would not be relevant for this opportunity.  However, if you are using photography or film as part of an applied arts practice, then that would be relevant.  Whilst this initiative looks to explore the wider context of contemporary applied arts practice, please note that the decision of the Selection Panel is final and binding. If you are still unsure about eligibility, please contact the exhibition organisers, Parker Harris.
