The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical information, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Our submission process has changed

We’d like to highlight a small change which has been introduced alongside TPA’s exciting new website, this being the change to our submissions process. Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

Coming in 2017 - Patterns

We are really excited to announce that our next catalogue will be called “Patterns”. We have previously run a number of competitions that have touched on the theme of pattern and the entries that we have received have been extremely impressive. The catalogue will be printed later this year and will go out on tour in Autumn 2017.

If you any photographs that you have taken that fit the theme of pattern, but have not entered one of our past competitions, we would still like to see your work. If you would like to have your images considered for inclusion in this exciting catalogue, please get in touch with our Head of Design, Ruth, who will be able to advise you on submitting your work. Please email
