August Sander Prize for portrait photography. Deadline: Feb. 28, 2018 

A new prize for portrait photography will be awarded every two years from 2018. The “August Sander Prize” is endowed with 5,000. – € and is sponsored by Ulla Bartenbach and Prof. Dr. Kurt Bartenbach in cooperation with the Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur, Cologne.
In addition to the prize money, an exhibition in the Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur will be organised in consultation with the prizewinner.
The awarding of the prize combines the idea of promoting young contemporary artistic approaches in the sense of factual and conceptual photography. National and international artists up to 40 years of age with a focus on photography are eligible to participate.
The naming of the prize is explained by the fact that The Photographic Collection/SK Foundation Culture owns the August Sander Archive, the world’s largest collection of original works by August Sander (1876-1964). Against the background of August Sander’s important portrait photographs, the photographic works of the applicants should primarily relate to the theme of the human portrait.
The jury is made up of five members: a curator, an art historian from the academic field, an artist, a representative of the founding family and a representative of the Photographical Collection/SK Foundation Culture.
The closing date for entries is 28 February 2018 and the prize-giving ceremony will take place in September 2018 at the Photographische Sammlung. The complete invitation to tender including all the conditions of the competition can be found at the following web address: http://bit.ly/2ylRG2D

    1. Unfortunately there isn’t an official one. That’s why I have provided it, to facilitate access. Try to contact the organizers or use Deppl Translator (which works better than Google translator)
      Best, Moritz
