Hahnemühle, the world-renowned fine art paper manufacturer, is hosting its international Student Photo Competition, accepting entries through April 30, 2019.
Students from around the world, who must be enrolled at a state-recognized university, college or photography school, will submit a series of five photos in the style or theme of their choosing. The competition will be held in two rounds, with the first round selecting 50 finalists, and the second round whittling it down to first-, second- and third-place winners. There is no fee to enter.
The 50 finalists will receive a set of Hahnemühle sample packs to help them choose the best paper to print their work onto. The finalists will then receive a box of 25 sheets of their favorite paper.
The international jury, made up of photographers, photo journalists, gallerists and other photo industry experts, will judge the photo submissions based on artistic quality, technical quality and quality of content. Winners will receive cash prizes: EUR 1,500 for first place, EUR 1,000 for second place and EUR 500 for third place, with the intent that the money will be used to support the winners’ further photography work. Also, the top photo series will be displayed at Photokina 2020 in Cologne, Germany.
Registration and photo submissions must be done online using Hahnemühle’s portal — find it here. All entries must comply with the competition’s terms and conditions, also listed on the portal. Good luck!
