Theatre Photograph of the Year exhibition at National Theatre

We are delighted to announce that we are partnering with the National Theatre on an exhibition of the Theatre Photograph of the Year competition.

The exhibition of shortlisted and winning entries will open on 20 May in the Lyttelton Lounge at the National Theatre. 

The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers alike and invites entries in three categories; beautiful buildings, connecting communities and entertaining evenings. From the category winners one image will be chosen as the overall Theatre Photograph of the Year.

There is also a special category for younger budding photographers. Open to anyone aged 16 or under, the Young Theatre Photographer of the Year prize asks young photographers to select one entry which reflects any of the main competition themes.

We are pleased that National Theatre Director Rufus Norris will be joining the judging panel, alongside four of the Theatres Trust's Ambassadors; Samira Ahmed, Matthew Bourne, Miranda Hart and Jude Law, and Theatres Trust Director Jon Morgan and long-term volunteer photographer Ian Grundy.

Thanks to FujiFilm for sponsoring the print for the exhibition, Aecom for sponsoring the competition and Theatre Tokens for providing the prizes.
