The future in their sites


OLYMPUS and the Art Bermondsey Project Space support the next generation of photographers from UAL.


January 2017 will see the first annual Olympus Photography Award given to current University of the Arts London students.


Responding to the theme Site/In Situ, students were asked to submit work in three categories: Print, Projection and Multimedia and the winner of each category will receive a camera from OLYMPUS. There will also be a viewer’s choice awarded.


The selected 30 finalists will exhibit work that places the artistic process in relation to the surroundings where students develop their skills and research and will showcase the many ways in which practitioners are using photography today.


The exhibiting artists are: Calum Barlow, Claire Barthelemy, Rachel Beeson, Marie Cognacq, Jasmine Nicole Da Costa, Cecilia Dumont, Pietra Galli, Claudia Greco, Glenn Michael Harper, Andrew Hart, Huxin Huang, Jae Youl Jeoung, Lukas Kay, Shrey Khandwala, Portia Legge, Nadia Lino, Tuli Gal Litvak, Hugo Lunet, Lucio Martus, Tamami Mizutani, Marcin Nowak, Toyé Pending, Danielle Sargeant, Rosa Saul, Dom Sebastian, Yuhwa Son, Georgina Stables, Guillaume Valli, Annabel Wicker and Yang Xu


Gavin Ramsey from the University of the Arts London Students’ Union said – “Olympus and Art Bermondsey Project Space are giving an invaluable opportunity to UAL students to exhibit their work, network and develop professionally. A Brand new camera will also be a massive help!”


Mike von Joel, Creative Director Art Bermondsey Project Space said – “We are very much looking forward to unrolling a complete programme of collaborations with UAL, of which this photo based competition is one. ABPS is a not for profit platform supporting the fusion of art, photography and culture and the students of the six UAL colleges are a perfect partners for this creative adventure.”


Georgina Pavelin, Marketing Manager Olympus said – “Educational initiatives and support to encourage artists working with visual media are prime co-ordinates of our international sponsorship programmes. The Bermondsey Project Space is a professionally run gallery that can foster and promote fresh ideas and those just beginning a career in the creative Arts. Olympus is pleased to contribute to what is a unique exhibition facility in the heart of London.”
