HP today announced the winners of its online Street Photography contest at the Rencontres dâ€™Arles Photography festival.
The top winner is German Eduardo HernÃ¡ndez Saavedra from El Salvador for his photo â€œCuerda Flojaâ€ (Tightrope) taken on a street in Havana Vieja, Cuba. The winning photo was chosen from more than 10,500 entries from 79 different countries ranging from Azerbaijan to Venezuela.
Saavedra wins an all-expenses-paid trip to the festival, including an exclusive dinner and portfolio review with Magnum photographer Stuart Franklin with an opportunity to gain valuable insights into Franklinâ€™s work.
Thirty of the best images in the competition have been selected by Franklin to be printed on HP Z-series Photo printers and exhibited at the Hotel Arlatan for the duration of the festival, which runs from July 3 to September 16.
