We are delighted to present the results of the first monthly theme of Life Framer edition IV – CIVILIZATION. We asked you to explore the lived-in world – people, cultures and societies.

The theme was judged by Simon Norfolk – a distinguished artist described by critics as ‘the leading documentary photographer of our time’, and recipient of many prestigious accolades including the Discovery Prize at Les Rencontres d’Arles, the Infinity Prize from The ICP, the Prix Pictet, and multiple World Press Photo Awards.

You can discover the winning images below and join the discussion on FacebookInstagram and Twitter. Congratulations to all the talented photographers featured, and thank you to everyone who submitted their work.
