8 Fe­bru­ary to get your en­tries into the 2019 Zeiss Pho­tog­ra­phy Award, which is run by the World Pho­tog­ra­phy Or­gan­i­sa­tion and, of course, Zeiss.

Now in its fourth year, the Zeiss Pho­tog­ra­phy Award is an in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion which aims to chal­lenge pho­tog­ra­phers to sub­mit bod­ies of work ad­dress­ing a se­lected theme.

This year the themes is “See­ing Be­yond – The Un­ex­pected” and the sub­mis­sions will be judged by pho­tog­ra­phy ex­perts Si­mon Fred­er­ick (artist, pho­tog­ra­pher, di­rec­tor and broad­caster, UK), Shoair Mavlian (di­rec­tor of Pho­toworks, UK) and Dag­mar See­land (pic­ture ed­i­tor at Stern mag­a­zine, Ger­many).

“The Un­ex­pected” chal­lenges en­trants to sub­mit a se­ries of five to ten im­ages which look past the ev­ery­day and ad­dress some­thing un­fore­seen or sur­pris­ing – whether this is through the land­scape and the phys­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment, through hu­man ex­pres­sion, emo­tion and in­ter­ac­tion, through po­lit­i­cal or so­cial causes or some­thing more con­cep­tual.

The jury is look­ing for pho­tog­ra­phers who push their cre­ative bound­aries by re­spond­ing to the brief with ex­cep­tional im­ages and a strong nar­ra­tive. The com­pe­ti­tion is free to en­ter at www.world­photo.org/ zeiss and your on­line sub­mis­sions have to ar­rive by 1.00pm GMT (Green­wich Mean Time) on 8 Fe­bru­ary. The win­ner will win €13,000 (around A$21,000) worth of Zeiss lenses and a €3000 (A$4800) grant to help fi­nance a pho­tog­ra­phy project. The win­ner will be an­nounced on 9 April next year.

Nick Hannes was the 2018 Zeiss Pho­tog­ra­phy Award win­ner and he com­ments, “Win­ning the Zeiss Pho­tog­ra­phy Award in 2018 has given great ex­tra vis­i­bil­ity for my project, both through repet­i­tive on­line pub­li­ca­tions and through port­fo­lios in the reg­u­lar me­dia and on pho­tog­ra­phy plat­forms. Sev­eral of the art­works have be­come widely-recog­nised due to the at­ten­tion brought by the Award”.
