Enjoy our showcase of the eight images that won medals from this year’s London Salon The London Salon of Photography is a group of award-winning creative photographers, and membership is by invitation only. Currently there are 45 members. Each year, the Salon hosts an exhibition (this year’s is the 108th edition) to which photographers of all levels are invited to enter. Each entrant may submit up to four monochrome and four colour prints, of which a maximum of two from each section may be selected. On the judging day, Salon members select photographs to be exhibited and award up to ten special London Salon Medals to non-Salon members. Every entrant receives an A4 colour catalogue displaying all of the accepted prints and also has the opportunity to purchase a photo book. This year, 991 prints were entered with 129 accepted, of which 90 of these were from non-members and eight Salon medals awarded.
