LensCulture has opened the LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2023, its international street photography competition, for entries once again. The deadline to enter is 21 June and winning photographers will win cash prizes and be part of a group exhibition at a gallery in New York City during The Photography Show, as well as exposure at international photo festivals.
Street photographers around the world may enter, there is an option to enter a single image free, and students have the option to get a 30% discount on their entry fees. You may also enter a series of five photos ($35) or a series of a maximum of 10 photos ($45). For an additional $25 you get a written review of your work.
The competition aims ‘to celebrate the unique perspectives and creative visions of street photographers everywhere, showcasing the diversity of the genre and the many ways in which it can be interpreted’ and is open to all types of street photography, including black and white, smartphone, portraits, analogue and travel.
The competition will be judged by a panel of photography professionals like Deputy Director of Photography for National Geographic Sadie Quarrier and Women Street Photographers founder Gulnara Lyabib Samoilova.
LensCulture has this piece of advice for entrants: ‘Many successful photographers enter the same work in several competitions before they finally win. This is an effective strategy to have your work seen by many different jurors and build your career. Persistence is the key to getting your work seen by influential experts worldwide – it only takes one person to make a positive impact on your creative journey!’
