ZEISS Photography Award 2016

Running alongside the Sony World Photography Awards, the world’s largest photography competition, the ZEISS Photography Award “Seeing Beyond” invites photographers to submit work responding to the brief “meaningful places” by 5th February 2016.

One winning photographer will be given a free choice of ZEISS camera lenses worth €15,000 (Euros), the opportunity to work individually with ZEISS and will be flown to London to collect the award at the Sony World Photography Awards gala ceremony in April 2016.

The award is free to enter and will be judged by a distinguished panel of industry experts. All entrants must be over 18. The theme for the award’s inaugural year is “meaningful places”. Photographers are asked to see beyond ordinary places and document the importance of a particular place or collection of places that somehow bear significance to each other. Bodies of work should include a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 images and particular attention should be given to the edit of your work. A brief description of your place and inspiration, may accompany the submission.


Step 1 - Your images will go through critical selection rounds conducted by a carefully selected judging panel of experts selected by ZEISS and WPO.

Step 2 - One single winning photographer will be chosen by the judging panel. This photographer will be awarded at the Sony World Photography Awards gala ceremony in April 2016. 

Step 3 - The winner and other selected photographers will be showcased as part of the official 2016 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition in London and on the World Photography Organisation website.
