The MSPF Street Photography Contest is the leading and most widely recognized competition in street photography in the world. Each year the most prestigious and knowledgeable panel of judges in the genre select the best of contemporary street photography known as the MSPF FINALISTS.
Being an MSPF FINALIST is a prestigious honor, and as such, they are all displayed in a printed exhibition in galleries in Miami and Milan, giving them unparalleled exposure to art critics, collectors, publishers and the art community in general. Many past MSPF FINALISTS have seen their career blossom as a result of the exposure gained by being selected as a finalist in the Miami Street Photography Festival contest.
This is the second year of our International Series Contest. Participants are required to submit a series of 3-7 images that form a cohesive body of work in the street/documentary genre. The series can reflect a specific photography project of a topic, place or people or it can be a group of photographs that have a theme that ties them together. The top three series, determined by a very experienced group of judges, will be exhibited in Miami during Art Basel, one of the top art events in the world
The Miami Photo Series is a MSPF competition that celebrates its home city of Miami. The contest calls for your best images dedicated to documenting life in Miami and all surrounding areas. Participants are required to submit a series of 5-7 images exploring a theme inspired by the Magic City. Only images taken in Miami and immediate urban south Florida areas will be considered.
