Extraordinary British reportage photographer Giles Duley, to judge The London Photo Festival in May

Each year we see the London Photo Festival grow in popularity and submissions, and spaces at this year's Festival have doubled as a result.

Giles Duley is this year's judge. As many people know, Giles was wounded by landmines in Afghanistan and, now, despite being a triple amputee as a result, is still a photojournalist and an inspiration to many photographers. The London Photo Festival is delighted he is to judge the competition on the launch evening on Wednesday where members of the public and the press are invited to come along and meet him.

The fourth London Photo Festival will run from 16 -18 May in the Crypt under St George the Martyr Church opposite Borough Underground station.


This year's theme is travel, and at Friday's Click 'n Clique evening, a unique platform for visitors to meet the photographers behind the works, and for photographers to network with other photographers and photography industry suppliers.

Entry is free for the public. The Festival will be open from 10.30am on all three days and will remain open late on the Thursday and Friday, closing at 6pm on Saturday, 18th May.

All visitors will be encouraged to vote for their favourite work in the 'f/factor' competition.

Pre-booked portfolio reviews, vital for any budding photographer, will be offered throughout the Festival and more details will be announced on the Festival's website in due course.

Founders and organisers, Abitoffthemapp Photography and HCK-Photography are taking the exhibition concept beyond the capital next year. We are working on plans to expand into other venues across the UK, as we've been inundated with enquiries and such a positive response to our clear cut remit. We aim to support new and emerging amateur and semi-pro talent and help give them a professional platform for exhibit, network and for professional review that is affordable and most importantly commercial.
