London International Creative Competition

Honorable Mention in the Category Photography

About The Award

London International Creative Competition jury panel shortlist 100 of their favorites design and projects, then chose 15 finalists for their breath-taking creativity! Based on each finalist overall rating, LICC will announce the two main winners: “Artist of the Year” professional and “New Talent of the Year” student.

Since starting out in 2006, the London International Creative Competition has been recognising and rewarding the world’s most fresh and progressive talents. Our artists are connected not by conventions, but by qualities. They work across a diverse range of formats, from painting to printmaking and from fashion to photography. We’re not looking for anything done by-the-book. We’re looking for work that is as visual as it is vital.

LICC is the brainchild of two artists, Launa Bacon and Hossein Farmani, for Farmani Group. Farmani Group is a leading organization curating and promoting photography, design and architecture across the globe since 1985. Hossein Farmani is the founder of two non-profit organizations “The Lucie Awards” and “Focus on AIDS” as well as the award-winning VUE magazine, International Photography Awards, Px3 (Prix de la Photographie de Paris), Art For New York, aNet Communications and more.
