LensCulture is on a mission to discover the most imaginative, talented, creative photographers out there, regardless of location, age, background or experience level.
Where can you photograph the heart and soul of a society and its people? From the street! As people move between private and public spaces, the street can be a generous and vibrant stage for photographers, offering a window into a particularly compelling place and time for the careful observer. Throughout history many of the world’s most iconic and memorable photographs have been made by street photographers, but who is is defining this genre today? For the 2019 LensCulture Street Photography Awards, we are searching the globe to find out. If you are creatively capturing the weird and wonderful moments of life as they unfold around you, we want to see your work! Just by entering, your work will be reviewed by the editors for immediate exposure in the Competition Gallery and across all the online channels, reaching a combined audience of over three million.
There are no limitations on age, level, genre or location.
LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2019 is open to all types of street photography like black & white, mobile photography, analog, conceptual, street portraits, urban, street fashion, road trips, street art, travel, architecture, abstract, graphic, large format.
You might be shooting with an analog camera in the city that never sleeps or using your smartphone to document daily life in your hometown. No matter your tools or your location, organiser wants to see your unique perspective from the street, however you define it.
For best results, upload the highest-quality JPEGs, sized a minimum of 1200 pixels on the longest side (2000 pixels is even better). Maximum size is 10MB. The file name should be under 50 characters. The system can accept up to 5000 pixels (maximum) but 2000 pixels are perfect for their judges. The system cannot accept files that are larger than 5000 pixels. DPI doesn’t matter because the submissions are not for print — as long as the submissions are 2000 pixels on the long side, your work will look great on the platform.
All photographers retain full copyrights for their own work.
