The jury’s decision is now final: they have nominated five submissions in each of the five categories and for the ‘Emerging Photographer’ competition. All nominated submissions can now be viewed online together with descriptions of the concept and information about the photographer.

The formal award ceremony will take place in Osnabrück on 14 October 2017. One day later, all works submitted by the nominees, which naturally automatically include the winners, will be shown in a high quality exhibition in the Museum of Cultural History for a period of four months.
