August Sander Award

The August Sander Award – Prize for Portrait Photography, sponsored by Ulla Bartenbach and Prof. Dr. Kurt Bartenbach in collaboration with Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur, Cologne will be awarded for the second time in 2020.

The prize is designed to promote young artists working in the field of documentary and conceptual photography. In honor of August Sander’s seminal contribution to portrait photography, the candidates’ photographic work should primarily focus on portraiture. The prize is awarded every two years.

National and international artists aged 40 and under who work mainly with photography are eligible to enter. The prize is endowed with €5,000. Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur will also organize, if possible, a solo exhibition of the winners’ works in cooperation with the artist.
