In mid-June, Nokia put out a call for entries in its low light photo competition. Partnering with Talenthouse, an online creative collaboration network, and Dazed and Confused magazine, entrants were asked to submit their best urban/street style low light images captured with a camera or other photographic device.

Fifty favorites were selected by Nokia, Dazed and Confused and London-based photographer Tyrone Lebon. Each finalist was provided with a trial Lumia 925 smartphone (which has a maximum ISO of 3200) with which to shoot additional low light, urban-style images over a period of two weeks. Nokia and Dazed and Confused then selected three winners from the second round of submissions and awarded them with an all-expenses paid VIP trip to the Burton High Fives (a snowboarding invitational in New Zealand) and publication of their images in Dazed and Confused.

Visit the Nokia conversations blog to learn more about the winners, see photos from other finalists and get some tips on shooting in low light.  Meanwhile, here are more images captured by the contest winners.
