Photography Awards







For those people who are interested in showing your photos to the public and want to know how good you are, applying to the photography contest is one way besides making posts on SNS.

Even when you do not get any awards, there should be something to learn by looking at the awarded photos- I think you will bw able to look at the photos more closely when applying to the photo contest.

So this time, I’d like to introduce you to photo contests which has the section for street photography.

(I have applied to some of it but haven't got any award yet… which I understand as I should make more effort!)
