CLOSING SOON: STREET LIFE

Deadline: 31 July 2017

From the pulsing arteries of a bustling metropolis, to the quiet solitude of its empty backstreets. Glistening glass and steel, against crumbling brickwork and eroded stone. Chance encounters and random moments. From Los Angeles to Lagos; as a stranger in a foreign land or on a habitual stroll in the village you’ve always known. Life is in the streets. Take us there.

Urbanscapes, observational photography, accidental revelations, street encounters, city scenes… Inspire us with street photography, and the insights it can uncover.

Judge: David Alan Harvey
