Open Call | Seeing Beyond Photography Award

Deadline: 7 February, 12 noon

The World Photography Organisation and ZEISS have launched the second edition of the ZEISS Photography Award ‘Seeing Beyond’, with the theme “Meaningful places”.

Following on from last year’s hugely successful inaugural edition, which attracted entries from 116 countries, this time, photographers are asked to look past the ordinary and the “everyday” 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.

One winning photographer will be awarded with 12,000 Euro worth of ZEISS lenses, 3,000 Euro travel expenses to complete a dream photography project in the location of their choice plus a trip to London to attend the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards ceremony to receive their prize.

The competition is open to all photographers around the world and each entry should include a series of at least 3 and not more than 10 images.

Un-published work entered into the competition must have been taken between the dates of 1st January 2012 and 7th February 2017.

The ZEISS Photography Award ‘Seeing Beyond’ was created in response to both World Photography Organisation and ZEISS’ commitment to provide further opportunities for photographers.

No submission fee.
