Wundor Editions, a London-based company committed to publishing innovative and challenging literature and images, working with new and established writers and photographers, has announced an exciting street photography contest for this early part of 2018!
Wundor is looking for one image that cuts into the city it was taken in and reveals something telling about the urban environment and its inhabitants. The subject matter of the image could range from a simple shot that captures the light and the architectural fabric of the place at a particular time on a particular day, to a picture of a person caught in a revealing moment, to anything in-between. Wundor says that If necessary, they are happy to see the definition of street photography stretched to the maximum.
“Images are a central part of our creative vision at Wundor Editions, and readers of Wundor City Guides will know that street photography is one of our favourite ways of understanding the cities that surround us,”
the company states.
Wundor states that photographs taken in any format and on any photographic tool will be accepted. Entries will be judged solely on the artistic quality of the images submitted, and the creative impact of the final result.
£300 will go to the winner and they, along with two runners up, will have their photos published on the Wundor website. All three will receive a copy of Wundor City Guide Tokyo and a Wundor tote bag. The contest is open until February 28, 2018 and the results will be announced shortly after. Contestants may make as many entries as they would like. The prize is open to international entrants, however, entrants under the age of 16 must ask an adult to make the submission on their behalf. Entrance fees and submission guidelines can be found at: https://wundoreditions.submittable.com/submit/101188/wundor-street-photography-contest-2018.
