It has been a long few months at home and, like many of you, the LensCulture team is dreaming of summer vacations, adventures with friends and family, and a little change of scenery. Our ability to travel in the literal sense of the word is restricted for now, but photography offers us a wonderful opportunity to virtually satisfy our collective wanderlust. So for this award, we’re seeking photography that explores a broad and aspirational theme: journey.

There is no limit to your interpretation of this theme.

Show us places you’ve loved, imagined or invented. Submit an epic odyssey of the heart or a journey of self-discovery. Dig out photographs of your favorite summer vacation with friends and family, or visually construct your next one. The possibilities are boundless!

Exhibition during Paris Photo

All winning photographers for this award will be exhibited in Paris! An opening reception will be held for artists, invited media, photo editors and industry insiders for a night of art appreciation and networking during one of the world’s largest international art fairs dedicated to photography.

Free Entry

We are proud to offer free entry for single-image submissions. This special offer is part of our ongoing commitment to make entry to our awards and access to career-changing benefits open to all photographers, no matter your location or budget for entering competitions.
