How to Enter:
1. Submit five to eight of your best street photography images from anywhere in the world.
The London Street Photography Festival defines Street Photography as:
“candid, un-staged photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings.”
Street photography is perhaps more easily defined as a method than a genre. The results can fit into documentary, portraiture and other genres, but the key elements of spontaneity, careful observation and an open mind ready to capture whatever appears in the viewfinder are essential.
See Rules for full details and judging criteria.
2. You will be asked to include:
- a brief biography of yourself (max 100 words) and a description (max 300 words) outlining the process and background of your photographic work
- a title (optional) for your work and caption for each photo
- the location that each photo was taken (optional)
Entrants can be living anywhere in the world. The photographs may be taken anywhere as long as they were produced in the last five years.
