BJP Breakthrough Awards 2017
Metro is thrilled to be official print sponsor for the third edition of British Journal of Photography’s Breakthrough Awards, offering students and recent graduates an opportunity to showcase their work and launch their careers.
Four outstanding photographers will be selected to have their work presented in a group exhibition in East London in addition to having their work published on BJP’s print, online and digital platforms plus expert advice on launching a successful career in photography
The judging panel consists of experts from the photography, art and publishing industries and will select a Series Award and Single Image Award winner in each category. The winning images will be printed by Metro and exhibited as part of the Free Range Graduate Shows at The Old Truman Brewery in June. Additionally Metro are supplying each winner with a bespoke printed portfolio following a portfolio review with our print experts, ensuring the best possible start in their photography career.
Winners will also be invited to professional-practice workshops and events taking place during the exhibition and where possible BJP will be happy to facilitate introductions to relevant industry experts.
