Exhibition Proposals

Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at the IWM.  Please read these guidelines carefully before submitting your proposal form:

  • For major exhibitions our programme is planned approximately three years in advance, please bear this in mind when submitting your proposal.
  • Any art or photography based proposals must be submitted with images, film or a link to an external site, otherwise we cannot consider them.
  • Please do not send original material to IWM, as we will be unable to return this to you.
  • The Churchill War Rooms and HMS Belfast do not mount temporary exhibitions so we cannot consider proposals relating to these branches.
  • Unfortunately, due to the high volume of proposals received by the IWM, we are unable to respond to every proposal submitted. 
  • Your proposal will generate an automatic response email acknowledging receipt but if you do not hear from the IWM within 4 months, please assume that your proposal has not been successful.
  • Please do not contact the IWM to follow up your proposal as we will be unable to respond.
  • For acquisition or donation enquiries, please see our Offer Material to the Collections pages
