Chelsea International Photography Competition

The Chelsea International Photography Competition exhibition features the diverse works of 28 professional and amateur photographers. The works on view were selected by a distinguished panel of jurors and convey the astonishing breadth and global nature of the photographic medium. Through expressive portraits, still lifes, and conceptual works, the exhibition conveys a unique perspective on the tradition of photography and how the medium conveys ideas, creates fictions, or captures attitudes.

Korean photographer and photojournalist HaleLee Seoyeon masterfully captures the paradox of compassionate isolation in urban spaces.

Big Picture Natural World Photography Competition | 2017 Winners and Finalists Announced
We’re thrilled to share this year’s spectacular winners and finalists, chosen from nearly 6,000 entries.

Grand Prize
Confiscated, Denver, CO
Britta Jaschinski, England, UK

German wildlife photographer Jaschinski has been devoted to documenting the fractured existence of wildlife in captivity for over a decade. Her passion to protect animals, takes her across the globe to reveal otherwise untold stories about animal suffering. Jaschinski has received many international awards and lectures across Europe on photography and animal conservation issues.
These stools are only an example of the many deeply disturbing items that people try to smuggle through borders and airports across the globe. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stores 1.3 million seized items at a warehouse in Colorado. Trolleys are used to move the confiscated items around the warehouse. I placed the body parts on this backdrop to give some dignity to the objects and pay respect to the animals that loose their lives in the name of status, greed and superstition.

Since its beginnings, photography as an art has brought people together. So it is not surprising that there is a special bond between photographers – regardless of where they come from. The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, an one of a kind international team competition created in 2013, celebrating photography in a way never dreamed of before. Sure, there are lots of other competitions, but there is just one World Photographic Cup.
