Are you aged between 15 and 25? Do you enjoy taking photographs?

Would you like to see your images displayed in the Tate?

Yo! London is a photography project that explores the rich and diverse people of London. The Octavia Foundation is wanting you to capture and document Londoners through portrait and street photography – accompanied with a mini biography. Photographs need to focus on the importance of diversity by covering themes such as home, art, ethnicity, disability and stereotypes.

Selected images will go on display in an exhibition to be held at the Tate Britain in May. Please have a look at our Pinterest account for the types of images that we are looking for.

Send your photographs of the people who define your London along with a Photo Consent Form to Andrew.south@octaviafoundation.org.uk  All images submitted must have a supporting biography or interview from the image subject.

Please make sure that you have permission from the photo subject to use their image and explain to them that it will be used in an exhibition. All images will need to be of a good quality so when you submit them make sure they are a minimum of around 5MB (3456 x 2304), 300dpi or above. This can differ depending on the camera or phone you are using so if you need any more info please email us.

Deadline for submissions is 10th April.
