Different perspectives are just as welcome as free interpretation: “You could present places with social or historical significance, or personal, emotional or aesthetic value – or even all of the above.”

The three jury members, international experts from the world of photography, assess all the submissions. The winner can look forward to fantastic prizes: he/she will receive ZEISS camera lenses to the value of €12,000, and €3,000 to put towards a photo trip.

22,000 submissions from 116 countries in 2015

The ZEISS Photography Award will take place during the Sony World Photography Awards, the world’s largest photography competition. Both competitions are run by the World Photography Organisation. In 2016 more than 3,000 photographers from 116 countries submitted a total of 22,000 photos for the ZEISS Photography Award. Tamina-Florentine Zuch from Hanover was named the winner with a photo series of her train trip through India.

Indien / Kota Junction (Rajasthan) - Margao (Goa) Jährlich sterben tausende Inder durch Zugunglücke. Durch Zusammenstöße mit anderen Zügen, Fahrzeugen oder Tieren, Entgleisungen, beim Überqueren der Bahngleise und ein großer Teil von ihnen am eigenen Übermut. Ein Trend hat sich vor allem unter jungen Männern breit gemacht: Das Aufspringen auf fahrende Züge oder sich bei voller Fahrt soweit wie möglich aus den offenen Zugtüren hinauszulehnen. Schlimm geht es aus wenn dem Adrenalinrausch plötzlich Stromleitungen, Bäume oder eine Tunnelmauer im Wege sind.
