SF Contest Judges

STREETFOTO SAN FRANCISCO

INTERNATIONAL STREET PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS

CONTEST JUDGES

The most important job in a street photography festival is contest curation.

If the judges aren't good, the contest won't surface great photos as winners, and the reputation of the entire festival is put at risk. We have strived to pick juries that are made up entirely of active, working street photographers whose work we respect and admire. These judges are not magazine editors, retired photojournalists, or professors. They do what you do, and they are among the best. We are very grateful for their generous participation.

Here is our 2016 dream team, in no particular order . . .
