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 Portrait Exhibition in June. Portraits are one of the most popular forms of photography and can produce a great variety of images. Whether its a studio portrait to something much more candid portraits can really show the audience a lot about the sitter and quite often the photographer as well. We want you to submit images that you think best showcases Portrait photography in the many forms that it can take. 

Portrait is an open call for photographers to submit up to 8 images that would be considered Portrait photography.

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

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.

All participants that are selected to take part in the exhibition will be put forward for a chance to be named Photographer of the Month.

*Please Note, if you are submitting images that contain nudity, or partial nudity, you must also provide a model release form. We must be satisfied that the subject of the image is aware that the image may be exhibited, that the general public may see it and that they are comfortable with that.*
