First run in 1861, this exhibition is one of the oldest and longest running photographic salons in the world. This 158th running will accept just over 200 of the best photographic prints selected by our international panel of judges from the thousands submitted from all corners of the globe. This low acceptance level is a challenge to many photographers who submit work, eagerly hoping for an acceptance at Edinburgh. The exhibition is organised by and displayed in Edinburgh Photographic Society in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town. A4 Printed Colour Catalog is included.
