Update 18 Sept, 2017: Submissions have now closed.

We are extremely excited to launch our third SPACE Open Exhibition for 2017! This time around we've selected a seemingly easy theme, but also one that you can get really creative with, so there's a challenge there for you! So once again we are offering you, our lovely photographic community the opportunity to submit your work! The show opens on September 28th and will feature 30 curated images selected by the Orms creative team, as always this will form part of The Orms Cape Town School of Photography exhibition that showcases the work by our full and part-time students.

Exhibition Theme: Spring

We invite you to enter your very best images to represent the season of "Spring". Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is that Spring brings new growth, so your images of beautiful flowers and plants are of course very welcome.  However, we want you to think beyond that as well. Spring also represents new life, not only in plants but also for many animals and insects. For many it represents new beginnings and starting over, it's a time to get unstuck and move forward. It could also represent energy, getting out of that winter slump and taking on a new adventure. Whatever Spring means to you, that's what we want to see, get creative and have fun with it!

The exhibition will open at the Orms Cape Town School of Photography on September 28th, 18h00 – 20h00. Everyone is most welcome, so please make a note in your diary, we would love to see you there.
