The Glasgow Gallery of Photography's mission is to advance the arts, heritage and cultural sector through exhibitions of photographic works as a means for artistic, community and personal expression.

The Glasgow Gallery of Photography is running a month long exhibition in November and the title for this exhibition is Emergence 3. Emergence was an exhibition which started in 2019 to help celebrate photographers and their photographic emergence and practice by exhibited work they are most proud of. We are revisiting this exhibition as we think it is important for photographers to be able to share their progress in their creative practice.

You do not need to be a professional photographer to participate as we believe that photography is for everyone.

Emergence 3 is an open call for photographers to submit up to 8 images of any genre of photography, to showcase their development as photographers. 

Photographers who are selected will have their work displayed for a month long exhibition.
Work will appear online in our online gallery on our website.

We want you to send your best images. We want work from both emerging and established photographers.

This is a unique opportunity to bring your work to an audience of Artist, Photographers, and Creatives as well as the public.


Both Scottish and International photographers are welcome.

How to participate:

Submission for this exhibition is FREE.  If your work is selected there is a participation fee of £48.00
This covers the cost of everything.
We will print, install and un-install the work in the gallery space.
Local photographers are free to collect their work afterwards as we will hold it for 1 month.
