The 2018 Miami Street Photography Festival is practically around the corner. Ok, it’s not until December – but we all know four months goes by in a flash. Fortunately, you still have time to submit images for the festival’s three contests. Yes, you read that right, for the first time ever, MSPF is having three contests. They go as follows:
This contest is for single images and is judged by a qualified jury panel in a two tier system. First, all submissions are judged in a blind juried process by a panel of internationally accomplished street photographers who are active members of street photography collectives. These judges will selelct up to 100 images as the 2018 MSPF Finalists. In the second round, the featured 2018 MSPF featured speakers will vote on the top three winners from among the finalists.
MSPF explains, “All selected finalists will be exhibited at HistoryMiami Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate, in downtown Miami and will be the highlight of the Miami Street Photography Festival which is held during Art Basel Week, December 6th to 9th, 2018. Art Basel Miami is one of the world’s premier art events attracting a large international audience of art spectators, collectors, curators and gallery owners.”

International Series Contest
This year MSPF is launching their first ever international series contest. To compete, you must submit one or more series of 3-7 images that form a cohesive body of work in the street/documentary genre. Your series can be specific in nature, for example, a photography project about a topic, place or people. Or it can be a group of photographs that blend together thanks to a harmonious visual theme. The images can be taken anywhere in the world.
The top three series will be chosen by a talented group of judges and exhibited in Miami during Art Basel and at Street Photo Milano in Milan, Italy.
