Finally Some Finalists
Remember us mentioning the International Street Photography Awards? Anyone could enter, as long as you had some interesting photos to share. Well, the organisers of this competition have finally anounced some finalists.
“In 2012, over 2,400 photographers entered the second International Street Photography Awards. From a shortlist of 50 photographers, 16 finalists were selected and will be included in the International Street Photography exhibition at 29-31 Oxford Street from 1 to 30 June 2012. The winner and two runners up will be revealed during the festival.”
I had at look at all of the photos and have chosen only 5 that I liked the most. To tell the truth I was a bit disappointed – if I saw images that belong to the best 16 photographers out of 2400, then what were the rest like? The International Street Photography Award claimed to be “looking for exceptional, international photographers who display a unique style and depth of work in the genre of street photography”, yet what I saw sometimes reminded me of poor quality homemade photos. Anyway, I will let you form your own opinion – please click here for more photographs.
I hope that the winning image will be one of the above. Then I would at least know that everything’s ok with my photographic taste! Fingers crossed…
