SOMA Magazine #StreetPulseSF photo contest

PicsArt is teaming up with the illustrious SOMA Magazine for a special San Francisco-style themed contest where winners will see their #StreetPulseSF images printed in SOMA Magazine’s October issue! For 27 years, SOMA Magazine has been the seminal voice and vision of independent, avant-garde arts, fashion, culture and design, which makes it a perfect partner for PicsArt and our mission to beautify the world. 

Between August 14th and September 14th, we’re asking photographers to capture fashion trends that represent the diversity of San Francisco’s neighborhoods. Find and preserve the styles of trendsetters, fashionistas, and even the girls/boys-next-door. Be on the lookout for people that stand out from the crowd or who carry themselves with quiet confidence. 

Select submissions will be featured on PicsArt’s Explore Page throughout the contest’s duration and winners will be selected by a jury at its conclusion.  


  • The contests takes place between August 14th and September 14th.

  • All images must be taken in San Francisco and shared to PicsArt with the hashtag #StreetPulseSF.

  • To be accepted, all submissions must focus on a subject’s fashion.

  • Special consideration will be given to images that use the PicsArt editing suite in creative ways to showcase the neighborhood and the style of the people in it.

  • If you’re not a San Francisco-based photographer, you’re more than welcome to share photos you’ve taken in SF in the past.

  • There’s no submission limit, so tag as many shots as you’d like!

  • Winners will be selected by a jury. 

Not in San Francisco?

Not to worry! Even though you may not be eligible for this contest, you can still play along by creating your own #StreetPulse hashtag for where you call home.
