Life Framer is a photography award that sources and showcases outstanding work from amateur to established artists. The award is made up of 12 monthly calls for entries – each judged by an industry leader with a wealth of experience and expertise. You can use your entry to submit to one or more of the open themes.
Each month winning photographers receive online exposure, $2000 in cash prizes, and at the end of the year the winners are exhibited in shows in New York, Paris, Rome and Tokyo. This is the third month Life Framer is running and for this edition there’s no clear lead as yet.
Participants are free to investigate everything, and to capture anything: landscapes, portraits, reportage, conceptual, personal documentary, travel; from spontaneous street moments to meticulous studio set-ups and everything in between.
This month’s judge is Katerina Stathopoulou, a curator at the Musuem of Modern Art (MoMA), having previously worked for the International Center of Photography.
With a focus on contemporary photography, she curates MoMA’s challenging and varied collection of renowned artwork, as well as sitting on award panels, and running portfolio reviews.
The jury list includes Steve McCurry, David Alan Harvey, Simon Norfolk, Brian Paul Clamp, Katherine Matthews, Yumi and Masaru Goto, Wilfrid Estève, Lorenzo Vitturi, Alison Morley, Peter Funch, and Clément Saccomani.
Collective comments are provided by Life Framer’s guest critic team at the end of each month so that every photographer that submits can learn to curate their best work.
The closing date for this month is 31 August. Click here to find out more or enter the competition.
