The London Salon of Photography invites you to submit prints to their 100th Annual Exhibition, 2011.

The London Salon was founded in 1910, but before that it existed as the Brotherhood of the Linked Ring, a photographic society that was established in 1892. The original Linked Ring members were a breakaway organization from the (Royal) Photographic Society, who at that time placed more emphasis on the science of photography than photography as a form of art.

Today, like back then, the aim of the London Salon is to exhibit only that class of photographic work in which there is distinct evidence of artistic feeling and execution.

Membership to the London Salon is still by invitation only. However, their annual exhibition is open to all photographers. You can also lend your support in the form of an annual subscription (friend of the London Salon). Friends receive a personal invitation to a private viewing of the exhibition along with a free colour illustrated exhibition catalogue.
