The Solas Prize has five judges and we plan to speak to each of them to find out what they are looking for in the submissions. We start with Tanya Kiang who has been the Director of the Gallery of Photography in Dublin since 1998. Prior to that she was Editor of Circa Art Magazine. She has curated exhibitions by many leading contemporary photographers. Recent work includes projects for Irish Museum of Modern Art, New York Photo Festival, Three Shadows Gallery, Beijing and the inaugural Chongqing International Photography & Video Biennale.
The Gallery of Photography will be putting on an exhibition of the winning work from the Solas Prize. This will include the The Solas Awards Exhibition and the Solas Ireland Awards, a special award for work made by Irish photographers or made in Ireland.
