Competition – September 2013

Urban Picnic Street Photography has already brought a great street photography competition to you this year. The number of submissions, and overall excitement about the competition was great. This month you have the opportunity to try again.

This one won’t be a cash prize… It’s even better! What could be better than money to a street photographer? A camera of course!



Panasonic G3 16MP Compact System Camera with 14-42mm Lens

& Lowepro Courier 70 Compact Case


The wonderful guys over at Argos have been kind enough to donate a Panasonic G3 16MP Compact System Camera with 14-42mm Lens and Lowepro Courier 70 Compact Camcorder Case. Panasonic cameras and digital camera selection here.


To enter

Upload to the UPSP website as you do normally. The prize goes to the best photo submitted during September.

All images submitted for the month of September will be eligible for the prize, though we all know it’s the pride of winning that you’re all after really!


New UPSP Flickr group

Photos posted to our new Flickr Group are also eligible. You can join the UPSP Flickr group and submit photos here.

Urban Picnic will also be providing the winner of the prize with an opportunity to become a guest editor on the site for the month of November.

As with all of these things, there are a few T’s and C’s, and they can be seen below. But essentially, we are looking for all that wonderful work you have been creating over the Summer and waiting for the right competition just like this one to bring it out. We always want the best of the best here at UPSP, and this is no exception.

The usual high standards of selection will be applied to the images for the month. UPSP editors will choose from submitted photos and post to the ‘Street Photography’ section. Featured images will be chosen from this section. The winner will be announced in early October when we have deliberated and made the selection.

The editors for this month are Jamie Furlong, Matt Obrey, Rob Hill, Tristan Parker, Fabio Costa, Emilio Barillaro and Vasco Leão.

So get out there, get shooting, and bring us back something special. Upload you best shots as normal to enter the competition. We want the winner to earn this thing…
