Street photography today can vary greatly in how it looks and how it was made, but there are common elements that thread the work of all the greats: a love for the unexpected and candid moments of life, an ability to find visual order within the chaos of the world, and an unparalleled creative vision.
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 sixth edition of the 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! You might be shooting with an old film camera in a new city or using your smartphone to document daily life in your community. No matter your tools or your location, we want to see your unique perspective from the street, however you define it.
Winners will enjoy career-changing opportunities including exhibition in Paris in November 2020, extensive media coverage, projection at international photography festivals, cash prizes and more.
