2020 ZEISS Photography Award

The winning and shortlisted series for the 2020 ZEISS Photography Award are below. 

This year we challenged photographers to submit bodies of work responding to the brief “Seeing Beyond: Discoveries”. Throughout time the human race has been driven to make discoveries. This might be a personal revelation, a scientific and technological breakthrough or an idea that has led to social change - a new way of thinking that’s revolutionised our everyday lives. Since photography’s inception, many great individuals have seen the camera as a tool to explore and question the world, and used the power of the image to shed light on something new. 

The submissions will be judged by three experts in the photography industry. See the judging panel here. The ZEISS Photography Award seeks out to celebrate those photographers pushing the creative boundaries of the medium while demonstrating a strong visual narrative.
