Open Call Award Editors' Picks

‘A good photographer gets right inside the story, gets accepted as part of it, stands in the right place at the right time, and presses the shutter’. – Bill Hurn

Following the results of our recent Open Call photography award (judged by Editor and Curator of Foam Magazine Elisa Medde), our editors are excited to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make it through to the final round. These images, nonetheless display remarkable skill and technique; encompass a diversity of unique and fascinating subjects, and a variety of genres, and are, in our opinion, well worthy of exposure.
