Vantage Point Sharjah (VPS) is an annual photography exhibition that supports up-and-coming photographers from the region and around the world. Introduced in 2013 to encourage public engagement with photography as an artistic medium, VPS has evolved into a dynamic platform which showcases multiple approaches to photography, from photojournalism and photo essays, to analogue and experimental forms. Each year, photographers are selected through an open call. For its 10th edition, VPS invites works that celebrate photography's ability to perceive social realities and the diversity of contemporary lives, through different perspectives and forms of visual storytelling.
This year, the open call will be announced at the end of June, and selected works will be shown in an exhibition opening on 16 September 2022 at Al Hamriyah Studios. In addition, an international jury will select a winner and four runners up for the Vantage Point Photography Award. VPS is a core Sharjah Art Foundation initiative committed to discovering, sustaining and furthering photographic practice.
