About Abbey Road Music Photography Awards Exhibition 2023

Ahead of this year’s competition, which launches on 29 May, B:Music is hosting a month-long exhibition of the 2023 nominees and winners.

Formed in 2022, the Abbey Road MPAs champions emerging and undiscovered young photographers and celebrates the unforgettable, unique and unsung musical moments from the previous year.

More than 40 photographs will be exhibited in B:Eats, Symphony Hall from 13 May - 14 June, free and open to all from 11am-4pm, Mon-Sat for the duration as well as prior to evening events at Symphony Hall.

Across nine categories, including Live and ICON, as well as Undiscovered and Hip Hop 50, the exhibition will offer a unique opportunity to view the photographs in a distinctive setting. A series of masterclasses and panel talks, led by local, established music photographers and MPAs alumni will also be running across the month, in addition to special performances from emerging Birmingham-based musicians.

Abbey Road’s Music Photography Awards returns for its third year this October, with six open categories available for prospective entries from 29th May. Please visit abbeyroadmusicphotographyawards.com to find out more.
