After much deliberation and angst amongst the 'inner circle' here at Paris If You Please & Friends, we proudly present you (below) with the ten short-listed photographers from the June 2012 International Paris Street Photography Competition!
Below you can enjoy the full sets of three Paris street photos from the ten finalists. To see larger versions of all competition entries please visit our Flickr group here.
You Vote Too!
Although the main prizes are voted for by our panel of partners, sponsors and friends, you, dear visitor, can also vote for your three favourite photographers and your three favourite individual pictures, giving us a People's Choice winning photographer and a People's Choice winning photo.
Each photographer has a number next to their Flickr name, and each picture shows its number when you hover over it with your mouse. Use these numbers when voting for your favourite three photographers and pictures.
Winners will be announced here on Paris If You Please and on our sponsors' web sites, so come back soon for the big news! Not only will they win some great prizes, but the overall winners will go through to the final in December to battle for the title of International Paris Street Photographer of the Year, 2012! The best photos of the year will also be up for prizes too!
