“Life Framer is an incredible resource for both the aspiring fine art photographer and their desired audience. I’ve discovered amazing photographers with similar thematic outlooks as well as having received international recognition after being exhibited in their traveling shows.” Sinziana Velicescu

A showcase of international photographic talent


Our exhibitions are at the heart of the award, showcasing the work of our entrants in exciting and dynamic environments, to the audience they deserve. With our past editions, stunning contemporary images from winning photographers and a hand-picked selection of honorary mentions were exhibited. The display inter-weaved distinct stories, situations and characters in a powerful and inspiring way.
