Hahnemühle is happy to announce their first photo competition which is specially designed for photography students. No matter what their individual style and focus is, all enrolled photography students have the chance to take part and submit a series of five images. The choice of theme is left entirely up to the student.
About the competition
The competition consists of two rounds. In the first round, the jury selects 50 finalists from among all the online entries. In the second and final round, the 50 finalists will submit their photo series printed on Hahnemühle paper.
To make choosing the paper easier, every finalist will receive a set of Hahnemühle sample packs. This means that every participant in the final round has the opportunity to choose the paper that best suits their own photo series. We’ll then give each finalist a box of 25 A3+ sheets of their chosen paper.
Take a look at the teaser video
We have assembled an internationally renowned jury, made up of photographers, curators, gallerists and other experienced photo industry experts, who will evaluate the photo series from a professional perspective according to the following criteria:
artistic quality: composition, creativity and visual persuasiveness
technical quality: technical/practical implementation
quality of content: congruence between the concepts and visual implementation
The top three finalists will receive a cash prize of EUR 1,500 for first place. Second place will receive EUR 1,000, and third place will receive EUR 300. The prize money is intended to further promote and financially support the student's photography work.
As a special highlight, the winning photo series will be displayed at the Hahnemühle booth at Photokina 2020 and exhibited at the gallery “Eisfabrik” in Hannover for six weeks.
