April Theme: On the Edge – Closes on : 30th of April, 2014
At some point in our lives we are all faced with being on the edge, whether that be literally or metaphorically. For the dare devils among us, pursuing that adrenaline rush can often involve scaling great heights, balancing precariously on the edge of a deep precipice, or finding the courage to leap off the ledge. However, being on the edge can also be an emotional reaction. Sometimes life can throw a curve ball leading to feelings of anxiety, torment or despair. However you decide to interpret this theme, we’re looking forward to receiving the most creative and inspiring images that you have to offer.
The lucky winner will receive a 1 year membership to The Royal Photographic Society, to include 12 issues of The Society’s acclaimed Journal packed with news, reviews, diary of events and some of the best photography around.
The Royal Photographic Society exists to promote photography and image-making and to support photographers in realising their potential, irrespective of their level of knowledge, equipment or skills. It has an international membership. The Society also acts as a public advocate for photography and photographers.

The Photographic Angle holds free exhibitions that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into temporary galleries. The exhibitions showcase contemporary work submitted by students, graduates and enthusiasts of the art of photography, giving the public the chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, an occupation, or simply a pastime.
For each exhibition, an expert in the art of photography is invited to select a new theme inspired by their own research, for which photographers can submit work to tour around TPA galleries throughout the UK. Work can be submitted to this website by visiting the “Submit to Exhibit” page. Following submission, chosen images are printed by the charity, at no expense to the photographers submitting them. New themes are chosen regularly, and exhibitions are constantly changing.
TPA is proud to be linked to the Royal Photographic Society, and in conjunction with it, is responsible for funding a bursary for work in relation to environmental awareness. In addition, the charity also awards a number of its own bursaries each year.
The charity is run by an enthusiastic team which is committed to bring photography to all levels of the community.
The team is made up of trustees, permanent staff and our ambassadors. Here is a description of the individual members of the team.
