ZEISS Photography Award 2019 "Seeing Beyond – The Unexpected "

Pushing the limits of creativity 

The ZEISS Photography Award is now in its fourth year – and is calling on ambitious photographers from across the globe to present their work around the theme “Seeing Beyond – The Unexpected” to the international jury of experts. The ZEISS Photography Award is jointly organized by ZEISS and the World Photography Organisation. Last year, 12,000 photographers from 140 countries submitted nearly 90,000 photos.

Photographers are asked for a creative response to the brief "The Unexpected" that is driven by a strong and clear narrative. To be understood in its broadest sense, "The Unexpected" challenges photographers to submit a series of 5-10 images that 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 'unexpected' element could be of global or very personal concern and may either showcase the familiar in a new way or shed light on something entirely different. All types of photography are welcomed by judges.

2018 ZEISS Photography Award

Garden of Delight, a stunning photography series by Belgian photographer Nick Hannes, has been revealed as the winner of the 2018 ZEISS Photography Award "Seeing Beyond – Untold Stories", alongside nine shortlisted photographers. The work of all shortlisted photographers and Nick Hannes will be exhibited at Somerset House, London as part of the 2018 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition from April 20 - May 6, 2018.
