LensCulture has announced the winners of the 2017 Street Photography Awards. With entries into various genres of the art like street portraits, urban culture, street fashion and many more, the competition aimed at “discovering today’s finest photographers capturing exceptional moments of life in all of its vibrant forms.” LensCulture went as far as to waive entry fees for those entering a single image in an effort to discover the most talented image-makers, adding that every photographer deserves the opportunity for exposure and recognition without restriction.

Announcing the winners, LensCulture said the competition was started with the idea of recognizing fresh approaches to the genre, hoping to support and encourage this invaluable manner of helping us visualise and understand the surrounding world.

We believe the 37 winners, jurors’ picks and finalists chosen here represent some of the most interesting approaches to street photography today,” the press release published the online magazine’s site said.

Quietly observed beauty, in-your-face confrontation, deeply personal narratives and idiosyncratic, even humorous perspectives—across all of these varied works, the language of the street is being used to tell all kinds of stories in original and innovative ways.

First place in the series category went to Hakan Simsek of Belgium with his “Out of Breath,” photos. Second place was awarded to Spanish photographer Alberte A. Pereira for his series “Fragments,” with third place going to Italian snapper Antonio Privitera for his work entitled “La Nostalgia.”

The winner in the fantastic single image category is Moin Ahmed from Bangladesh with his stunning photo entitled “The Man’s Stare.”

Second place went to Artyt Lerdrakmongkol from Thailand with an image he called “Little Onions,” and third place went to Ilan Burla from Israel for his “Dog Fun” photo.
