Passing this along … looks like we could submit up to three packages/essays for consideration.
From the 18th till the 21st of June 2008 the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover organizes in cooperation with the German organization of photojournalists FreeLens the Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism on the expo area in Hannover. Photography students and young professionals from all over the world will show their reportages and series in over 60 exhibitions.
Your university is welcome to participate in this event. With this festival, its numerous exhibitions and its attractive program with many international stars of the photojournalism branch, we would like to improve the communication between the international photography schools and give young photographers a wide audience.
We would be pleased, if you submit interesting journalistic projects to apply for one of the 60 exhibition spaces until the 28th of February 2008. For that purpose we are searching for reportages containing 15-30 pictures with a theme of your free choice. In addition to this, the best reportage will receive the Award for Young Photojournalism endowed with eur5.000 founded by FreeLens.
For more information, please look in the enclosed newsletter. You can also visit our webpage www.fotofestival-hannover.de.
If someone’s interested, let me know and I’ll explore further.
