Designed to empower a community of photographers around the world.

Life Framer is a platform for discovering, sharing and exhibiting contemporary photography. We run monthly calls for entries, each with a different theme and judge – renowned photographers, curators, editors and gallerists – and at the end of every 12 months we exhibit the winners in gallery settings around the world.

Founded in London in 2013 by a team of photography lovers, we saw a space for something innovative and engaging – for an award with artistic integrity that felt accessible to emerging photographers. Since then we’ve evolved, expanding the team and our collaborators, exhibiting in further-flung locations, publishing photobooks and adding new features such as our Journal, memberships, public photographer profiles and portfolio reviews, but the passion remains the same – to celebrate creative photography online and in the flesh.
