The 2017 Brief
Following on from last year’s hugely successful inaugural edition, which attracted entries from 116 countries – from Albania to Zimbabwe, the theme for the 2017 ZEISS Photography Award ‘Seeing Beyond’ is “Meaningful places”. Photographers are asked to look past the ordinary and the “every day” to capture extraordinary aspects of the world we live in, by documenting the importance of one or several places that bear significance to each other.
The award is free to enter and will be judged by the following industry experts:
- Jürgen Schadeberg Dr.(h.c.) – Photographer
- Claire Richardson – Picture Editor, Lonely Planet Traveller
- Sarah Toplis – Commissioning Executive,? Space
