Portraits on the street

Marianne Breslauer, 'Défense d'afficher', Parijs 1937 © Marianne Breslauer/Fotostiftung SchweizIn connection with In the Picture! 3x Photography at the JHM, the museum is holding a photography competition with the theme of 'portraits on the street'. Our challenge to you: submit your most beautiful, striking or original photograph related to the theme of the three photo exhibitions opening on 15 July at the JHM.

The three exhibitions Unguarded Moments, Saul Leiter: New York Reflections and My Name is Cohen will focus on portraits and street scenes. The competition combines these two subjects and gives you the chance to show your work to a wider audience.

How to enter the competition
Take a photograph of a person in the midst of an ordinary, present-day street scene. The challenge is to find an unguarded moment. The JHM will post all the entries here. The five winning photos will also be presented to the world in the next issue of the JHM magazine. When you submit your photograph, make sure it has the following dimensions: minimum of 21 × 29,7 cm, 300 dpi.

Photographs can be sent by e-mail until 31 August with 'Fotowedstrijd' in the subject line. Please include your name and address in the message.
