Xposure International Photography Festival Competition
Xposure gives photographers the opportunity to participate in multiple competitions, online across 8 categories. Awards will be given out for best-in-class photos picked by our expert panel of judges. You can submit your work online and see it feature in our gallery.
Photojournalism: International over 14
Representational photography, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally representing objective reality. Open to all published photojournalism and documentary projects, in addition to personal documentary projects.
Current Affairs: International over 14
Open to all reportage and editorial work in the style of news reporting. This work must not be manipulated or have altered pixels. Colour, Contrast, and adjustments to levels are permitted.
Landscape: International over 14
Showing spaces within the world. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes.
Street Photography: International over 14
Featuring the chance encounters, activities and random accidents within public places. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. People should feature directly or indirectly, as an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character.
Fine Art: – International over 14
Fine art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. You need to write that artist statement. It needs to be written in what is known as artspeak, or language that fits in with the art world.
