“SIX CONTINENTS” – Announcing the winners


We’re delighted to present the results of Life Framer edition II’s third theme. We embarked on a journey to expand our horizons and discover people, cultures and landscapes. Humans, nature, the ordinary, the magical.  We pointed the compass, but it was your call to go in any direction you wanted: your adventures, your discoveries and your journeys. The photography competition was judged by Stefano de Luigi.

Stefano de Luigi is a documentary photographer and member of the prestigious VII Photo Agency. He is a three-time winner of the World Press Photo Award and is a regular contributor to many international magazines such as  GEO, Stern, Time, The New Yorker and Le Monde. We caught up with Stefano and asked him what he is looking for in an outstanding photo. His response? “I’m interested in seeing through the photo to find the story, the idea, the vision”. He added some short and sharp advice to emerging photographers too: “Be curious in searching for stories. Be accurate in documenting them.” We couldn’t agree more…photography’s an art  and a science!

As part of the judging process Stefano picked the winners and commented on his choices. That way we can all have some valuable feedback and meaningful insights into the mind of one today’s best contemporary photojournalists.

You can discover the winning and shortlisted images below and join the discussion on Facebook and Twitter. Congratulation to all the talented photographers featured and thank you all for your support – so much diversity! We may have mapped  the continents of the planet but it doesn’t mean that there’s nothing left to explore on Earth… Onwards!
