Sreejith Kaviyil is the winner of the April 2017 Monthly Theme Contest. He is a Street Photographer that is based in Kerala in south India. Three months ago, Sreejith won the “Juxtaposition” monthly theme contest. His images was selected from a pool of 40 juxtaposition street photography themed photographs!
Since January we have introduced new prizes for the winners of these monthly theme contests. All prizes aim to give the winners massive exposure on our website and our social profiles. But what are those prizes?
The winning shots for The Street Hunters Monthly Theme Contests have been outstanding! Each month, each theme, has brought us a slew of great submissions and choosing finalists has become a most delightfully arduous task. Christoph Wuzella knocked us out in March with his Flash theme submission. Kristof Vande Velde took us into the Surreal with his otherworldly February submission. And Roy Rozanski crossed us up properly with his Zebra Crossings submission for January. So, what would April bring?
The theme for April was Juxtaposition, and again we were showered with some killer submissions! Juxtaposition, as defined by Merriam Webster, is “the act or an instance of placing two or more things side by side often to compare or contrast or to create an interesting effect.” The clever capture/use of juxtaposition can truly make a street photograph. That being said, there was cleverness abound within April’s submissions. However, there was one shot that brought it home with *multiple* juxtapositions! The one who prepared the buffet of juxtaposition? That would be Sreejith Kaviyil!
Dear Streethunters.net Readers,
April 2017 is over. It is time to announce the winner of the April 2017 Street Photography Contest!
The theme of the contest was “Juxtaposition” and we had asked you all to send in photos with examples of juxtaposition. You responded by sending in a tonne of photographs! Thank you all for submitting your lovely work!
As per the rules of the contest, the 3 editors of the Streethunters.net website Andrew Sweigart, Digby Fullam and myself, chose one photo each. The next step was to select the very best one of the three and present it here to you.
So, the lucky winner of the April 2017 Street Photoghraphy Contest is Sreejith Kaviyil and this is his photograph.
