After a staggering 3,560 photos were submitted, Hahnemühle is now starting the second round of the international Student Photo Competition.
The competition, titled ‘Show us your series’, was launched on 1 March and is aimed at creative young talents. All students who are enrolled at a university or a photography school and specialise in photography were eligible to take part.
More than 700 students from 52 countries took up the challenge and created impressive series in a range of styles, which were evaluated in the preliminary round by an internationally renowned jury. Fifty finalists have been chosen from all the series submitted online.
The competition has now reached the second and final round!
In this final round, which takes place in November, the series by the 50 finalists will be printed on Hahnemühle paper and evaluated by the jury. All finalist get their paper of choice from Hahnemühle´s paper portfolio. The jury assesses not only the creativity of the series, but also looks at photographic quality and how suitable the choice of paper is for the subject matter.
The winners will receive attractive cash prizes: the top three finalists will receive a cash prize of EUR 1,500 for first place, EUR 1,000 for second place and EUR 500 for third place. The winning photo series will be displayed at the Hahnemühle stand at photokina 2020 (including PR support).
