Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2014
An international jury awards the Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2014 to professional photographers whose unerring powers of observation capture and express the relationship between man and the environment in the most graphic form in a sequence of a minimum of 10 up to a maximum of 12 images. Entry submissions must be a self-contained series of images in which the photographer perceives and documents the interaction between man and the environment with acute vision and contemporary visual style – creative, groundbreaking and unintrusive. Only one entry per photographer is accepted.
The renowned photographic competition, the Leica Oskar Barnack Award has been announced annually since the year 1979.
