Street Photography Award Editors' Picks of September 2022

“All the technique in the world doesn’t compensate for the inability to notice.” – Elliot Erwitt

Following the results of last month’s street photography award judged by acclaimed American photographer Jamel Shabazz, we are sharing some of the competition entries that didn’t make it to the final round but impressed us with their overall strength and quality.

We discovered a great variety of street stories from all over the world and it was a pleasure to see photographers respond to the theme in so many ways. Daily scenes showing tenderness within family situations, candid moments of friendship, meticulously timed and framed scenes, and unexpected situations.

Photographers have shown versatility and a great eye for composition using both classic and experimental technics, through digital and film cameras and we’re delighted to feature the 12 artists presented here.

Congratulations to all selected artists: Anna Biret, Gavin Libotte, Phatsakorn Bundasak, Brad Jones, Edmond Leong, Maychelle Alvior, Hugo de Melo, Luning Cao, Gavin Doran, Greg Mo, Valentin Groell, Vincent Soyez, Joe Pollarine, Katarzyna Urbanek,

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!
