Open Call Award Editors' Picks of December 2021

‘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.

2022 Landscape AWARD Deadline: 30 November 2022

When taking a picture of a landscape, just like in a portrait or a scene, photographers attempt to tell a story.

From dramatic rural vistas to urban panoramics, or seemingly-abstract aerial compositions, this month we want to see images that showcase our planet’s diverse and beautiful topography.⁠

All approaches are valid and we want to see as many different styles and compositions as possible!
