Bristol Salon

Bristol Salon

Deadline: January 23, 2021
Entry Fee: from £15 to £30
Prizes: FIAP Blue Badge; PSA, GPU, PAGB and FIAP Medals and Honourable Mention

Bristol Photographic Society is proud to host the annual Bristol Salon. This is one of the most prestigious international photographic salons within the UK, and regularly receives entries from some of the best photographers worldwide. Many members, new and old participate too, providing a great opportunity to showcase their own work.

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to Covid-19 and in line with many other salons, we have had to drop the print sections this year, however these have been replaced by 3 new projected image sections: Creative, Scapes (Land, Sea & Cityscapes) and Action (People in Action, Movement & Sport) – these are in addition to Open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


The Salon will consist of Six (6) Projected Digital Image sections:

  • Open Colour (PSA PID Colour)
  • Creative (PSA PID Colour)
  • Land, Sea & Cityscapes (PSA PID Colour)
  • People in Action, Movement & Sport (PSA PID Colour)
  • Open Monochrome (PSA PID Monochrome)
  • Nature (PSA ND)


In recognition of the efficient management of the 2020 Bristol Salon a number of PSA, GPU, PAGB and FIAP Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will be awarded together with PSA, GPU, PAGB and FIAP Ribbons. A number of “Honourable Mention” Bristol Salon Ribbons will be awarded in each section. The entrant with the highest overall acceptance total will receive the FIAP Blue Badge for Best Author. Accepted entries will be eligible for FIAP & GPU distinctions and the PSA’s “Who’s Who” and Star Ratings (PID Colour, PID Monochrome, & Nature).
