The London Street Photography Festival defines Street Photography as: “Candid photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings.” They're looking for exceptional international photographers that display a unique style and depth of work in the genre of street photography. The genre crosses over into portraiture, documentary and art photography.
Here are some of the winning shots from the 2011 competition. (We picked out 20 of our favorites.)
The international winner will receive 2,000 cash plus a solo exhibition in London and an all-expenses paid trip to the exhibition launch and awards ceremony in London in June 2012 – total value 10,000. The first 500 applicants will be automatically entered into a draw to win some fabulous prizes including: a signed print from one of the 2011 exhibitions, an Olympus PEN camera, 100 Blurb voucher, a Crumpler Muffin Top camera bag, photo-books by Magnum and Thames & Hudson. Categories include an overall winner, a runner up, and 10 finalists.
The entry fee is 30.00? and you can register online here.
Application deadline is January 5, 2012.
