WHO IS THIS CONTEST FOR?
It is not important for us whether you have been photographing for one or twenty years. It doesn’t matter if you take pictures with your phone or the latest mirrorless model. We are waiting for your photos!
You may even think that your photos are useless, and yet we will try to convince you to send them. Let us judge for ourselves if they are ok.
Because we want to discover talented photographers during their lifetime.
You probably know stories like Vivian Maier. Photographer whose fantastic street photos were discovered by accident, unfortunately after her death. Her works are compared to those created by the most eminent street photographers like Bresson or Erwitt. The story of this talented artist could have a much more positive finale, if only she had shown her photos to someone.
So we urge you – show yours!
