This year’s event takes place once again during Art Basel in the Wynwood Art District, from December 4th-7th. The festival is open from 10am-11pm, Thurs.-Sat., and until 5pm on Sunday, with a variety of activities including two exhibits, lectures, workshops, student presentations, photowalks, portfolio reviews, and an interactive station. Leica Store Miami and ImagePro will be on hand to test cameras, equipment and a host of photo paper with on-the-spot printing, and Leica Akademie will be lending out their venerable cameras to test during the two hour photo walks.
Since its inception two years ago, the Miami Street Photography Festival has become an international event. Entering its third edition, the festival extends its reach with media coverage from the Huffington Post, BBC, and Harper’s Bazaar, in addition to numerous other publications and online sites. The 2014 photo competition includes submissions from fifty countries worldwide, and the organizers expect to enjoy continued attendance from photo-buffs and culture fans throughout the globe.
Finalists in this year’s competition are eligible to win a Leica x2 and will be published in ISP Magazine, among other benefits. The Grand Prize will be selected by this year’s presenters and world renowned photographers, Magnum’s Constantine Manos, Alex Webb, and Susan Mesielas, along with NatGeo’s Maggie Steber and poet/photographer Rebecca Norris Webb.
Most events are free and open to the public.
