6th Lumix Festival For Young Photojournalism now is over!
The 6th Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism is currently accepting applications for 2017 edition of its photojournalism competition inviting all young photojournalists from around the world to partecipate submiting their best works.
The Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism attests to the power of photojournalism in our image-oriented world. Fundamentally influencing our perception of humanity in all its facets, photojournalism contributes to our education and sensitization, rouses our emotion, and enables us to share.
This 6th edition invites young photojournalists to submit slideshows, multimdedia-reportages, scrollytelling stories or web documentaries. Even purely filmed / cinematic works are accepted if they are web-reportages shot with a photographic view. Documentary (short) films however are not allowed.
Only one reportage, essay or series (i.e. portrait series) with photojournalistic character can be submitted per applicant. The work shall consist of at least 15 to a maximum of 30 photographs, created after 1 November 2015. The work may already be published or awarded at other festivals (but this is not a precondition), and any work submitted in previous years will be eligible only if it forms part of a long-term project and contains at least 50 percent new images.
The Festival aims to be a platform for discussions, a picture show and a talent forum that appeals to professional picture editors and an interested expert audience as well as those who simply love photography.
A team of curators from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover and the photojournalist’s organisation FREELENS will choose the 60 works to be exhibited at the festival from the pool of submissions. After that, a five-person international jury chooses the winner of the FREELENS Award out of the 60 exhibited stories.
There is no entry fee for this competition.
This competition is open worldwide to young photojournalists, photographers, students of photography and trainees who are not older than 35 at the time of application.
