Fotoura Press Release
International Street Photography Awards
In 2013, for the third year running, the awards return, searching for the best street photography from around the globe.
After the success of the International and Student Street Photography Awards in 2011 and 2012, these prestigious awards return for a third year running in 2013, but they are now being run by the exciting new home of photography: FOTOURA.
The past two years saw entries from 113 countries, and allowed street photographers from across the globe the chance to have their work seen on an international platform.
The 2013 Fotoura International Street Photography Awards will include Open and Student categories, and will of course be open to photographers all over the world. The winners and a selection of the best entries to this competition will be shown in an exhibition in central London in Spring 2013.
There are a few differences to this year’s contest including a theme which is HOMETOWN (read more about the theme here), and some exciting ways for entrants to have their photos added to the Fotoura App, which will enable people from around the world to browse images and vote for their favorites.
In doing this, Fotoura hopes to not only continue to celebrate the tradition of street photography and engage more practitioners, but also to build a huge archive of extraordinary moments spotted in people’s daily life, all over the world.
ENTRY PRICE: £30/£15 students
(All entrants to the International Street Photography Awards receive a £30 voucher to print their own photo-book at Blurb.com.)
DEADLINE: 12th February 2013 (6pm GMT)

The first prize winner will receive £2000 cash, an exhibition of their work in London, a camera and £100 book publishing voucher. Second and third prizes will also be awarded, as well as ten runners up.
The judging panel is comprised of street photography experts and practitioners from the UK and abroad.

A WINNER IN EACH COUNTRY
Entrants can choose whether they want an image from their entry to be added to the Fotoura App, and included in a global public vote, which will result in a winner for every single country! These country winners will also be exhibited in the London exhibition alongside the officially judged first, second and third prize winners and runners up.
