Pushing the limits of creativity.
The ZEISS Photography Award is a highly prestigious international photo competition run jointly by ZEISS and the World Photography Organisation (WPO). “Our lenses enable photographers to achieve superior imaging quality, and the ZEISS Photography Award is an expression of our dedication to premium-quality photography,” says Dr. Winfried Scherle, Executive Vice President and Head of the Consumer Optics business group at ZEISS.
The motto “Seeing beyond – meaningful places” will also be used for the 2017 competition and accorded greater artistic significance. Photographers therefore have the chance to use their creative flair to lend unique places a special meaning and express this through their medium.
The goal is to push the limits of creativity and grow as photographers. They could be places with a particular historical or future value, or perhaps places that exude adventure, the wonders of nature or depict a journey to a faraway place.
“The lenses are mere tools – the real value of the images is down to the photographers and their flair for creativity.”
Dr. Winfried Scherle
All those who wish to take part in the ZEISS Photography Award 2017 are invited to submit a series of 5 to 10 photos complete with descriptions. Entries can be submitted between 11 October 2016 and 7 February 2017. The jury is looking for photos that reflect different perspectives as well as free interpretations of the terms “meaning” and “place.”
Further information on the submissions for 2017 can be found here.
All entries will come under scrutiny from a jury composed of leading lights from the world of photography. The jury for the ZEISS Photography Award 2017 comprises 3 members. Their goal is to assess the photographic skill and artistic flair of the participants.
At the end of the submission phase, a shortlist of photographers vying for the ZEISS Photography Award 2017 will be published and a winner will be selected. Inclusion on the shortlist is a great honor in itself. The winner will be announced on 14 March 2017.
The winner of the ZEISS Photography Award 2017 will receive ZEISS camera lenses of their own choosing to a value of €12,000, as well as €3,000 to put towards a photo trip. He/she will attend a gala dinner in London on 20 April 2017 and their photos will be showcased at the Sony World Photography Award Exhibition at Somerset House in London. All flight and hotel expenses for the gala dinner in London will be covered. The winner will also get the chance to work with ZEISS on an individual basis.
