LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2022

All winning entries will be exhibited

Throughout history, street photographers have created many of the world’s most iconic and memorable photographs — but who is defining this genre today? Is it you? For the 2022 LensCulture Street Photography Awards, we are searching the globe to find out.
If you are creatively capturing the weird and wonderful moments of life as they unfold around you, we want to see your work! You might be shooting with an analog camera in a city that never sleeps or using your smartphone to document daily life in your hometown or as you travel the world seeking adventures. No matter your tools or your location, we want to see your unique perspective from the street, however you frame it.
Read on for information about our expert jury and all the award benefits — including an international exhibition, exposure to our audience of over 3 million, cash prizes, extensive media coverage, projections at international photography festivals, and more.
Note that there is a free entry option for anyone to enter a single image! We truly want to discover the most talented image-makers and believe that every photographer deserves the opportunity for exposure and recognition without restriction.
