Exibart Street 2019 Street Photography Contest Winner

Exibart Street mission is to celebrate excellence in Street Photography.

We believe that people connect emotionally with photographs made directly from reality and since today everyone is carrying a camera with them at all times there’s been a huge influx of street photography.

The photographers showcased here allow us to see the world through their eyes, offering fresh perspectives on an ever-changing discipline.

The Judges of our competition and the entire editorial team is happy to finally announce the 9 finalists and the winner of the second Street Photography contest created by an art magazine.

Also for this second edition, we have received over 2500 submissions from photographers all over the world.

It was an arduous task for the Jury to decide the finalists and winner. Also, for this reason, we have decided to issue a certificate of participation for the first 50 finalists (out of over 2500 participants).

We will publish the complete list shortly.

Congratulations to all the participants!
