The Museum of Gloucester is once again working with the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) to bring their renowned International Photography Exhibition 163 (IPE 163) to Gloucester in January 2023.

Over 8,000 images were entered by 3,944 photographers from 114 countries, making this a record-breaking year for the most countries engaged with in an open call to the competition. A total of 105 works by 60 photographers will be on display in the Museum from 28 January until 4 June 2023...

The International Photography Exhibition (IPE) is the world’s longest running photography exhibition. Now in its 163rd edition, the IPE 163 is a powerful presentation that demonstrates the breadth of contemporary image-making and storytelling today.

The IPE 163 award is given to Tim Franco, a French-Polish photographer, for his work ‘Unperson – Portraits of North Korean Defectors’. South Korean photographer KyeongJun Yang receives the Under 30’s award for work from his series ‘Men Don’t Cry’.

This exhibition forms the second phase of the partnership between the Museum of Gloucester and the Royal Photographic Society which will see the International Photography Exhibition tour to the Museum of Gloucester each year following its initial display at their home in Bristol for three years.
