The SPi Awards is an initiative from Street Photography International (SPi) which promotes the best Street Photography from around the world, and provides a platform for unrepresented photographers with talent. The SPi Awards were established in 2017 as an international photography competition offering top prizes and exposure for a minimal entry fee. Concerned that the high level of entry fees charged by many competitions excluded a huge number of talented photographers from around the world from entering, a nominal fee per entry was introduced. By taking this approach, it is hoped to attract a greater representation of photographers regardless of economic status, location, ethnicity, race or gender. The aim of the SPi Awards is to showcase some of the best street photography being produced in the world, past or present, and to represent the wide diversity of styles within the genre.
In order to support the SPi Awards 2020, Ricoh are offering each of the 15 finalists as well as the winner a RICOH GR III.
The RICOH GR offers a responsive shooting style that provides dynamic feedback directly to senses of the photographer, enabling unmissable moments to be captured instinctively. Just by carrying around this pocket-sized camera enables you to perceive intricate details that would ordinarily be passed by. When taking photographs with the GR, the world around you and the people within it spring to life, capturing the imagination of creative minds. The GR continues to evolve with these principles in mind. Its appeal doesn't rely purely on technical spec, but a combination of passionate ideas and big dreams. This makes the RICOH GR the ideal companion for many street photography enthusiast and the perfect partner of the SPi Awards 2020.
