The SPi Awards celebrate the world’s best street photography

In 2017 we established the SPi Awards, an international photography competition offering top prizes and exposure for a minimal entry fee. Concerned that the high level of entry fees charged by many competitions excludes a huge number of talented photographers from around the world from entering, we set a price of £2 per picture. Sponsored by Olympus in 2017 and Leica in 2018, our winners both had solo exhibitions in London and received high end cameras. We also select twenty finalists each year. Their work forms a separate group exhibition, and they receive runners up prizes.
