LensCulture announced names of the Emerging Talent winners

Website LensCulture, the organizer of the Emerging Talent Awards, named fifty winners of the photography contest.

Website LensCulture posted the list of the nominees of the Emerging Talent 2014 contest. After looking at the works of over one thousand participants from 94 different countries, the jury selected 50 winners.

“Our mission at LensCulture is to discover and share the best of contemporary photography. But it’s hard to gain attention when you are relatively new and not widely known. That’s where we can make a big difference. We reach an audience of more than 500,000 — we want to highlight many emerging talents who deserve worldwide attention”, – it says on the competition’s webpage.
