All photographers are welcome to take part and the theme can be responded to playfully, or to the letter. There’s no rights-grabbing – photographers retain full and exclusive rights to their work.

Please note that Life Framer Edition III has now closed for entries, and the award exhibitions will take place from April to June 2017. The new edition will launch in June, with the themes, jury and exhibition locations to be announced in full in due course. Until then, early-bird entries are open for the first theme.

DEADLINE: 30th June 2017

The first theme of our new award edition is “CIVILISATION”.

For this new theme we want to explore the lived-in world – people, cultures, societies. It’s an invitation to show us the insights of this world from your own perspective.

From individuals to nations; city living and urban sprawl to rural life; social trends, anthropology, technological advancements and our interactions with the natural world… Show us civilisation!
