Editors' Picks Visual Storytelling Award

“If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.” – Lewis Hine

Following the results of last month’s Visual Storytelling Award judged by American photographer and VII Photo Agency member Ed Kashi, we want to share some of the competition entries that didn’t make it to the final selection but impressed by their overall strength and stayed with us.

The competition showed an incredible variety of storytelling narratives and skills featuring stories across the whole planet. Although we couldn’t reward every participant we would like to share the work of some of the talented photographers whose images impressed us and are well worthy of exposure.

Thanks again to all of you for taking part in the award and sharing your work with us!

THEME: TRAVEL Deadline: 31 August 2019

Competition Judge: STEVE MCCURRY

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it.

Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor, and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary... We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually - Let’s travel together!


1st Prize: $1000 · 2nd Prize: $600 · 3rd Prize: $400
