The international Felix Schoeller Photo Award is about to be held for 2019, marking the fourth occasion that the prize has been awarded. Between 1 January and 31 May 2019, professional photographers and photographers in training will be able to submit their work at www.felix-schoeller-photoaward.com.
The Felix Schoeller Photo Award honours photographers who demonstrate a love of photography and the highest quality standards in their pictures. It is awarded every two years with around 2,700 photographers from over 90 countries taking part in 2017. A five-member, independent jury, presided over by Michael Dannenmann, an internationally renowned portrait photographer from Düsseldorf, is free to select winners in thematic categories, with Fashion Photography being a category in its own right for the first time in 2019. This category covers the entire fashion spectrum and every aspect of representation including accessories.
The four remaining categories are carried over and include Portrait, Landscape and Nature, Photojournalism and Editorial, and Free/Conceptual Photography. An overall winner is chosen from the category winners. Prize money of €2,000 is awarded to each category winner, while the overall winner will enjoy a further prize of €10,000. The winner of the Emerging Photographer Prize will receive a prize (or a financial equivalent) worth €5,000. After the awards ceremony, winners and nominees will be exhibited in Osnabruck’s Museum District over a period of several weeks. The Felix Schoeller Photo Award has established itself as one of the most highly endowed photo prizes in the German-speaking world.
