The ZEISS Photography Award is in its third year and calling on ambitious photographers across the globe. This year's theme is called “Seeing Beyond – Untold Stories”. The focus of the photo series should be on stories that have not yet been told (or have not yet been told to the end).
"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.
Last year, around 4,700 photographers from 132 countries submitted their work. The deadline for your submissions is February 6, 2018. You can get more information about the Zeiss Photography Award 2016 by clicking here.
