This year GDIF held a third annual photography competition using Exhibitoo with Street Theatre theme.

We saw many brilliant entries, leaving GDIF with a very difficult choice when choosing a winner.

What made this year's entries so interesting was the level of intimacy with the performances - while many captured the large and grand spectacle nature of some street theatre, there was also an impressive array of insights made into focusing in on the connection between performer, location and audiences, and really showing what it means to bring the performing arts to specific areas and the people who inhabit them.

Below are the winners.

Winner of GDIF 2016 Photo Ambassador & Thames Jet Experience with CityCruises.

There is a beautiful balance of simplicity, humour and beauty in this photo, and the hint of colour adds to the timeless black and white nature of the photo. This mixture of colour really highlights each individual character in the photo, bringing each and every one of them to life. 'The Apple Performers' by Jagdip Kang

Winner of Thames Sightseeing Cruise & Lunch for 2 at Ship Restaurant Hispaniola.

This photo captured the intimate and affectionate nature of this performance, giving the viewer a once in a lifetime view into the meeting between two strangers and the ability for a piece of theatre to bring them together. 'Reliquary, GDIF 2015' by Roger Jackson

Winner of Family Ticket to Arcelor Mittal Orbit & JOY Gift Card.

There is a treacherous simplicity here, a performer walks a precarious line and the photo allows us to focus on the physicality that allows him to do this. The colour of the old buildings of The Old Royal Naval College merge with the costume and what was once architecture and performance, building and performer, become one. 'Close up of trapeze artist'' by Campbell Skinner
