Felix Schoeller Photo Award 2017
The Felix Schoeller Photo Award honors work that demonstrates a love of photography, combined with the most demanding quality standards for images. Prizes are awarded every two years and are open to German and international entrants: in 2015, we received submissions from 65 countries. A five-member jury, led by the internationally renowned, Düsseldorf-based portrait photographer, Michael Dannenmann, freely and independently deliberates on award winners in the categories of portraits, landscapes and nature, architecture and industry, photojournalism and editorial, and free/conceptual photography.
Anyone who loves, and is professionally involved with, photography or contemporary photographic design is warmly invited to take part in this competition: professional photographers, photographic designers and photographic artists, and emerging photographic talent. Our aims are to offer all entrants the opportunity to present their work to an international audience and give awards to promote outstanding work. We would also like to discover promising new talent, and have set up a separate Emerging Photographer Award to support young people’s progress towards a career in photography.
