The fourth annual LensCulture Portrait Awards strive to discover the best and most interesting portrait photography from all over the world. They're eager to see innovative new approaches as well as stunning traditional work — from quirky self-portraits to creative portrayals of family, friends, groups and ordinary people in diverse cultures around the planet. These Awards are open to all people and all interpretations of portraiture. Whether made in a studio with professional lighting, or on the run with a smartphone, portraits are clearly the most popular form of photography today.
