Win cash prizes and see your work exhibited in London, Paris and Los Angeles!

Now in its second edition, Life Framer has become a world-renowned platform for discovering and exhibiting contemporary photography. It is an independent community and photography competition of artistic integrity that promotes and champions creative culture on and offline.

Every month, a new call for entries is announced, overseen and judged by a world-renowned industry figure. Entries are invited for the month, and a selection of 20 winning photographers is made and promoted in an online group show. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three photographers.

The award culminates in three physical gallery shows - this year in London, Paris and Los Angeles. The top two photographers from each of the 12 months of themes are exhibited, along with a selection of the other photographers discovered throughout the course of the award.

August's theme is THE HUMAN BODY, judged by Alison Morley of the International Center of Photography.

September will be this edition's final theme, and will be an OPEN CALL, judged by Steve MacLeod of Metro Imaging.
