LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2016

The 2nd annual LensCulture Street Photography Awards (2016) invite you to show how you see the world.

The organizers want to discover today’s finest street photographers who capture exceptional moments of life in all of its vibrant forms. You’re invited to participate, engage and show us your streets!

As part of LensCulture’s dedication to discovering the best of contemporary photography, award categories were expanded. There will be awards for winners, finalists, special selections from each juror, as well as a new “Top 100”. A total of $23,000 will be awarded to the best photo series, single images and juror’s best picks.

The LensCulture Top 100 is a new award category that distinguishes the Top 100 photographers based on the jury’s reviews. All the work from the Top 100 will be included in the LensCulture Street Photography 2016 Online Exhibition.

Winners, Finalists, and Jurors’ Picks will have their work exhibited in San Francisco, at SF Camerawork, a nationally recognized organization promoting emerging artists in the photographic arts.

Street photography can take many forms: from candid, unexpected street portraits to brilliantly seen geometries within the built environment; anything from dazzling street fashions to gritty scenes of urban life the world over all fall into the genre.

You’re invited to participate, engage and show us your streets!
