About the Award: The World Photography Organisation and ZEISS are pleased to launch the third edition of the ZEISS Photography Award ‘Seeing Beyond’, with the theme “Meaningful places”. The competition was established by ZEISS to challenge photographers worldwide.
Photographers have until February 6, 2018 to submit a series of 5-10 images responding to this year’s brief:
“Seeing Beyond – Untold Stories” requires photographers to present a strong series of 5-10 images that look beyond the ordinary and every day. “Untold Stories” is intended to be understood in its broadest sense – the work could explore a familiar theme told from a different perspective or it could address an issue that has previously had little attention. All forms of photography are welcome and judges are specifically looking for series of works that have a strong narrative. The “Untold Story” that the photographer presents must be visually clear in the submitted images.
