About

At Loupe and The Brick Lane Gallery, we’re proud to promote emerging artists. This year we’ve joined forces to create ‘Another Graduate Show’ giving students and recent graduates the chance to have their work exhibited in a group exhibition at the Brick Lane Gallery in London, free of charge.

We realise the importance of giving new photographers a platform, and yet we’re also aware of the financial burden and stress of self-funded grad shows. Our answer is to offer up to 10 outstanding photographers the chance to exhibit their work in Loupe’s own Graduate Show, with no costs whatsoever. This includes no fee for submissions, and thanks to our friends at the creativehub, no printing costs either.

To make our open call as inclusive as possible, we also invite anyone studying for qualifications prior to University, those from nonphotographic courses, and those who have studied within the last two years.

To provide exposure for as many photographers as possible, we will be selecting a short list from the submissions. These shortlisted photographers will have the opportunity to sell their work through the Another Graduate Show online print shop, provided by the creativehub.

Just like our in-print magazine, we welcome submissions from photographers working in any genre and format of photography. You will have your work seen by our handpicked panel of industry judges who will select our shortlist and final exhibiting photographers.

Photograd's First Birthday Exhibition at the University of Suffolk

To celebrate our upcoming first birthday we're exhibiting work from some of the graduates featured on the platform in its first year. 40 graduates bring you a wide variety of work at the University of Suffolk's Arts Café until mid April.

We're really pleased to announce that the hard work planning our first exhibition is over... but now we're creating new Spotlight's and uploading new Features to the platform! The work doesn't stop here but a huge thank you does go to everybody who contributed to the show and provided tremendous support to the planning of it all!

Many of you have already asked for directions to the exhibition and so we figured this is the best place to share them. You'll need to head to the main Waterfront Building at the university to obtain a visitor pass to access the space, you'll then need to walk across the road to the Arts Café where you'll hopefully spot Photograd posters in the window.
