Part of Amateur Photographer of the Year 2020

Open Rating Results
Brief

Street photography is at once the hardest and easiest genre of photography. Everybody has access to a subject – just step outside your own front door – but not everybody can produce the kind of skilful work we want to see. Paying attention to the everyday movements of folk as they go about their business – and spotting the extraordinary within the mundane – is what makes great photographers of this genre stand out. Getting to know the work of some of the masters of street can pay dividends. Take a look at Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau and Vivian Maier. More contemporary practioners include Martin Parr, Niall McDiarmid and Nick Turpin, look them all up to see what works – and what doesn’t.

£1,000 of SIGMA prizes, plus subscriptions to Amateur Photographer magazine to be won.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
