Bristol Salon

Welcome to the site of the Bristol Salon of Photography, one of the UK’s leading International Exhibitions.


The Salon is conducted under the approved rules of the Photographic Society of America (PSA): 2020/002 and under the patronage of the Federation Internationale de l’Art Photographique (FIAP): 2020/009, the Global Photographic Union (GPU): L200003 and Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB): 2020-001 As a result of the efficient running of previous Salons these four organisations have awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for presentation to the top entries in the exhibition. In addition we will be awarding Bristol Salon Ribbons (Honorable Mentions); we hope to present approximately 300 awards again this year. Award winners and acceptances will count towards the granting of PSA & FIAP ratings.

The 75th Bristol International Salon of Photography.


You are invited to enter the 2021 Bristol Salon of Photography.

6 Sections

Unfortunately, owing to Covid-19 and in line with many other salons, we have had to drop the print sections this year, however these have been replaced by 3 new projected image sections: Creative, Scapes (Land, Sea & Cityscapes) and Action (People in Action, Movement & Sport) – these are in addition to Open Colour, Open Monochrome and Nature.

Hopefully, 2022 will be a better time for us all and that we will be able to bring prints back again.

We hope to award about 300 Medals and Ribbons
