UrbanPhotoFest Open

(re:) Thinking the Street

Welcome to the UrbanPhotoFest Open photography competition. This year’s theme is (re:)Thinking the Street, following on from the series of festival events held in London during

At UrbanPhotoFest we believe that contemporary street photography reflects a constellation of visual practices focusing on a range of approaches; including street-life, material culture and objects, portraiture, and street-based urban landscape. We know that street photographic practices can be diverse, engaging, thought-provoking, geographically resonant, and speak to wider concerns about the nature of the modern city. They can also reflect our experiences of non-urban and rural environments where streets make connections between villages and proto-urban spaces between.

Whether amateur, professional or student, you are invited to submit up to 4 images that showcase your visual representation of the theme of the competition.
