We are pleased to announce the launching of a new quarterly photography contest that is held and sponsored by “Burn My Eye” collective. The contest is designed to source and showcase new and outstanding street photography. Our goal is to provide a forum that brings together people with a passion for it and to bring exposure to talented photographers from all over the world.
The theme of the first contest is “ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD”. We aren’t merely looking for photographs taken literally “on the bright side of the road” but we are also looking for pictures that betray a positive attitude and vitality towards life.
The contest is hosted in flickr and all submissions will be accepted exclusively via the contest’s public group "Burn My Eye Photography Contest "ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD"
We welcome your submission to Burn My Eye first quarterly competition.

Street photography aims at capturing the extraordinary within every day life through candid snaps. By focusing beyond the mundane, the members of the Burn My Eye collective reveal their personal visions of the world and explore humanity’s very soul.
The eleven photographers from Burn My Eye present prints that range from surreal Asian captures to light leaked images taken on the rough pavements of New York. Streetwise, humorous, cinematic, insightful, the imagery takes the spirit of the street to both public spaces and the more intimate surrounds of the family home.
"Strange Days" is a compilation of street photography images taken during the past year. My approach is to photograph without a specific theme or idea in mind. When I look back at the pictures I’ve taken, I notice certain echoes in theme and style that transcend the documentary specifics of the images. These pictures are like missing pages from the same story, blown across time to different corners of the world. Without telling the full story, I’ve tried to put some of these images back together in portfolios. “Strange Days” like the film I named the portfolio after, is one of these fragmented stories, a puzzle with plenty of missing pieces.
