Soho Photo competitions are an opportunity for photographers to test their creativity and skill. Our Portfolio, Krappy Kamera, National and Alternative Processes competitions each have their own distinctive character and following.
Over the years, each of our competitions have helped to stimulate interest in diverse forms of photography.
We hope you will participate.

In the hands of an artist, great photographs can be made with basic equipment. To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Artists are encouraged to explore this medium and let the creative juices flow while shooting and in the darkroom (wet or digital).
This year’s juror is Russell Joslin, sole editor and publisher of SHOTS Magazine, an independent, reader-supported quarterly journal of fine art photography that reaches an international audience.
