International Street Photography Award

jeudi, janvier 20th, 2011

This start of the year seems to be full of exciting competition for street photographers. Indeed, a new event named the London Street Photography Festival will feature the first International Street Photography Award. Submissions end on March 31st and the Festival will take place in July.  To read more about it, click here or on picture.

As a side note, I always struggled to find a good definition for what street photography is. I think the directors of the Festival did come up with a very good one : “candid, un-staged photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings.”
