Street (Young APOY)

Part of Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021

Open Judging Results
Brief

This free-to-enter category is part of the Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021 awards, open to photographers aged 13-21.

Although street photography is easily accessible to most, it’s probably one of the most challenging genres to capture. Paying attention to the everyday movements of folk as they go about their business and spotting the extraordinary within the mundane is one thing but capturing a scene unfold in front of you at the perfect moment is another. It’s this forward-thinking that makes great photographers of this genre stand out. Take a look at the work by like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau and Vivian Maier or more contemporary photographers, such as Niall McDiarmid and Nick Turpin for inspiration.

There are £3,000 (GBP) worth of vouchers to win in Young APOY 2021, supplied by sponsors, MPB, plus the title of Young Amateur Photographer of the Year 2021. Click the 'Prize details' tab for more information.
