Life Framer is a monthly crowd-driven photography award for the present day. Itâ€™s a platform designed to source creative work and showcase outstanding photography from amateur, emerging or established photographers. Our aim is to bring exposure to talented photographers from all over the world: Their talent, their vision, their life.
The idea is simple: every month we make a call to arms to the photographic community to provide us with their photographs that best capture our theme. We shortlist our favourites, ask a guest judge to select their winners, and display them to the world on our website, and at the end of the cycle in a special gallery series in London.
In it for you is the chance to be exhibited in a gallery space, to win cash prizes and to receive some great exposure, recognition and online presence along the way. In it for us is the content and funding to curate a beautiful exhibition that encapsulates our theme and vision.
The theme is â€˜Lifeâ€™; All-encompassing and all-defining. We want to find beautiful photographs that capture life at its broadest and most diverse â€“ from the mundane to the magical, all over the world. To make this challenging theme more manageable weâ€™ll be breaking it down into twelve sub-themes, each running for a month.
1. Take some photos for each monthly theme
2. Upload them and pay (1 image = $10, up to 3 = $20, up to 5 = $30)
3. We narrow it down to our 10 favourites each month, from which a special-guest judge picks their winner and runner up
4. You get some great monthly prizes and exposure
5. We exhibit all of the winners and runners up in a special end-of-series exhibition in London
