Shakespeare Lives
is the British Council’s global, yearlong programme of activities and events, celebrating Shakespeare’s work for the 400th anniversary of his death in 2016. The British Council is looking for a selection of contemporary photographs to represent and market theShakespeare Lives programme around the world in a modern and refreshing way.

Up to 10 winning photographers will each receive a one-off usage fee of 300 per photograph and will be credited in full wherever their photo is used. The British Council will create a digital gallery of the winning images, in a similar style to this one, which it will promote widely as part of the Shakespeare Lives campaign. The winning images will also feature in a special Shakespeare Lives exhibition at the British Council in central London in 2016 and all winning photographers will be invited to attend the private view.
