Hey all you street shooters! The Independent Photographer is now accepting entries for their street photography competition. This is a stellar community that supports and promotes photographers from around the world, making a contest we highly recommend you enter – if you haven’t already. Here are the details:
The competition dates run from the 1st of January 2017 to the 31st of January 2017.
Here’s a brief description of what the judge is looking for:
“Street photography has been one of the most exciting and influential form of the medium of photography since its creation. From candid and unexpected street situations to meticulous geometric scenes within the urban sphere : We’re looking for photographers finding those spontaneous and fleeting moments.
Whether the subject is your own urban environment or as you explore other territories and cultures: We’re interested in the way YOU see the world.
Street photography can take many forms: Show us YOUR streets!”
The competition judge is Pierre Belhassen – a french photographer who is working on projects that explore relationships between cities. His focus is everyday life, but he looks to reinvent reality on occasion. Pierre has worked in New York, Marseille and Istanbul and his work has been printed and published by Leica’s M magazine, Epic Stories, LFI magazine among others. Let’s just say – he’s more than qualified for the job.
