Life Framer is an award designed to source and showcase outstanding photography from amateur, emerging and established photographers. We aim to bring exposure to talented photographers from all over the world. Their talent, their stories, their lives…

The overall photography competition’s theme is ‘Life’. All-encompassing and all-defining! To make things more manageable we break it down into twelve sub-themes, each running for a month.



About the award 

In less than two years Life Framer has become a world-renowned platform for discovering and exhibiting contemporary photography from talented emerging photographers across the world. It is an independent photography competition of artistic integrity that promotes and champions creative culture on and offline.

Edition I of the award was a celebration of the creativity and ambition of many such photographers. We supported artists to develop and present their work through three exhibitions and numerous online and print outlets featured their photography. Edition II builds on this success, this time heading to London, Paris and Los Angeles.


A prestigious jury, 3 international exhibitions and $7000 in prizes.

Photographers retain full and exclusive rights to their submitted work. Entries are judged

anonymously so that execution, originality and overall impact shine through.
