Thinking Photography / Writing Photography

The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie have joined forces to promote academic exchange in the field of photography. The "Thinking Photography. DGPh Research Award" is awarded for approaches in the humanities, cultural or social sciences which make an exceptional contribution to photography research. Photography is no longer debated and reflected upon exclusively in scientific publications – an innovative digital culture of discussion has permeated the field of photography. The second new award "Writing Photography. DGPh Prize for Innovative Publication" recognizes shorter formats such as blogs, columns and reviews, online publications and those creatively merging text and photographic material.
The submission deadline for both prizes is 30 September 2020.
