Founded in 1853, The Royal Photographic Society has a long and illustrious history in promoting the art and science behind the snaps we take, one that continues to this day. Currently, it has over 11,000 members and continues to grow as membership is open to anyone with an interest in the artform. Taking place every two years, The Members Print Exhibition celebrates the best photography its members have to offer and some of this year’s crop will be on display at the Washington Arts Centre for a month and a half.

2015’s competition saw 3,300 images submitted to the judging panel for consideration; they had the difficult task of whittling the entries down to 100 photographs and, eventually, three prize-winning photographers. This year’s winners all came from the United Kingdom – Steve Jones, Marc Aspland and Boguslaw Maslak – whose works will all be on display at the Biennale. There’s also a huge range of interests and diverse subjects on show, from landscapes to portraits, which are hoped will provide inspiration to the wider public. It might just encourage you to take up the artform for yourself.

The Royal Photographic Society’s Biennale takes place at the Washington Arts Centre between Friday 26th June and Saturday 8th August.
