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.
We would be pleased to invite you to this event. The festival offers, with its numerous exhibitions and its attractive program with many international stars of the photojournalism branch, a great stage for the photojournalism. The meeting of photographers, agencies, picture departments, publishers and gallery owners promises to be very pulsating for all participants. Besides this, it is one of the largest photo festivals in Germany, for thousands of people interested in photography.
Talents up to the age of 35 are welcome to apply for one of the 60 exhibition spaces. With this festival, we would like to improve the communication between the young photographers and give them a wide audience.
We would be pleased, if interested photographers submit journalistic projects until the 28th of February 2008. For that purpose we are searching for reportages containing 15-30 pictures with a theme of the photographer’s free choice. In addition to this, the best reportage will receive the Award for Young Photojournalism founded by FreeLens. It is endowed with eur5.000.
