Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie (DGPh) and Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation grant awards for writing about photography
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie and the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation are again jointly offering the two prizes “Thinking Photography. DGPh Research Award” and the “Writing Photography. DGPh Award for Innovative Publication”. The awards are presented every two years.
The “Thinking Photography. DGPh Research Award” recognises approaches in the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences constituting exceptional contributions to photography research. The prize is awarded to qualification theses (master’s theses, diploma theses or dissertations) or other independent publications connected to an expansion of research perspectives on the medium of photography. With no thematic restrictions or guidelines in terms of methods and approaches, special attention is given to works committed to venturing beyond disciplinary or methodological boundaries. Published or unpublished texts from the last two years can be submitted. The prize is endowed with € 3,000.
The “Writing Photography. DGPh Award for Innovative Publication” recognices innovative publications on photography and awards journalistic, essayistic and other publications. This prize directs its particular focus on smaller publications such as exemplarily selected blog posts, columns and reviews, online publications and formats which creatively combine texts and photographic material. Individual published content, either digital or analogue, from the last two years can be submitted. The prize is endowed with € 1,000.
An international jury will select the awards’ recipients. The award ceremony will be held as part of a public event, jointly organised by the DGPh and the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation in 2023.
The jury members for both awards are: Dr. Carolin Görgen, Asscoiate professor Sorbonne Université, Paris, Department of American Studies, award winner “Thinking Photography” 2020; Alexandra König, Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation; Renée Mussai, Curator and Researcher, Autograph London; Miriam Zlobinski, Member of the Board Section History and Archives, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie (DGPh).
