PhoS Athens 2017 – A free street photography festival in Athens in November 2017

We’re continuing the countdown to the PhoS Athens street photography event – a free street photography event taking place in Athens between the 10th and 12th November 2017 which Streethunters.net is helping to organise! Last week we brought you the announcement of the official programme for the PhoS street photography festival, which will include presentations, portfolio reviews, workshops, photowalks, exhibitions, and more! As well as all these events, one of the most hotly anticipated aspects of PhoS Athens has been the street photography photo contests held in the run-up to the festival. Read on for more…

PhoS Athens Street Photography Contests

In preparation for the launch of PhoS Athens, the organisers ran two street photography contests over the summer – a ‘Singles’ street photography photo contest and a ‘Series’ street photography photo project contest. Each contest was decided by a public vote and a judge vote, with the judging panel made up of the some of the top street photography names from around the world, including Chris Suspect, Alex Coghe, Zisis Kardianos, Dora Lavazou, Michelle Chan, Martin U Waltz, Andreas Neophytou, and more, as well as the Streethunters.net editorial team! The standard of entries was incredibly high, and we all had a really tough time voting for our favourite street photos and eventually picking our winners. For the Singles contest, the winner of both the First Jury Prize and the Public Prize was Weslei Barba. The Second Jury Prize was awarded to Juergen Buergin, and the Runners Up Public Prize went to ​Bassam Ihab. You can check out all the shots from these three street photographers over on the winners page of the official PhoS Athens site! And now, onto the Series contest…
