This Year we are unable to offer our usual three print sections due to the restrictions imposed by the Corvid 19 Pandemic which will prevent our teams handling the prints.


We are proud to announce the Smethwick 46th International Exhibition of Photography is going ahead despite the restriction of the Covid 19 pandemic. Sadly however, it has prevented us from receiving the usual high quality prints from around the globe. We have added ‘Creative’, ‘Scapes’ and ‘Travel’ categories to compensate for the loss of the print sections.
We are now looking forward to a bumper entry in the forthcoming 46th Exhibition.
