Jill Todd Photography Exhibition

Thu 09 Mar 10:00am to Sun 14 May 5:00pm

Venue: Nerve Visual 

Launching the next generation of photographers from both the island of Ireland and Scotland onto an international stage, the Jill Todd Photographic Award (JTPA) has for the last five years provided a platform for young (and not so young) photographers to develop, learn, and compete. An annual competition open to Fine Art and Photography graduates from Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland, the JTPA  gives emerging photographers the experience and profile of a gallery show at the prestigious Stills Gallery in Edinburgh and now at Nerve Visual - the first gallery in Northern Ireland to present the JTPA exhibition, alongside a programme of photography workshops, online competitions and events.
