ZEISS Photography Award 2020

創造性の限界を超えて

World Photography OrganisationとZeissが2016年にスタートしたZEISS Photography Awardは、それぞれインディビジュアルな視点から世界を捉えた傑出した作品に授与されます。

一つのテーマを題材としたシリーズ作品の提出をお願いしています。2020年のテーマは「Seeing Beyond – Discoveries」です。写真業界の3人のエキスパートが提出作品を審査します。ZEISS Photography Awardはその画像でパワフルにストーリーを語りながら、写真という媒体での創造性の限界を広げていける写真家を讃えることをその目的としています。 

1890年以来、Zeissレンズは歴史の瞬間を捉え続けてきました。Zeissのレンズが捉えてきたものは写真や映画といった芸術的な画像だけではありません。1969年の月面着陸の瞬間を捉えたのもZeissレンズです。

2020年のテーマ

Seeing Beyond – Discoveries

2020年のZEISS Photography Awardでは、「Seeing Beyond – Discoveries」というテーマを題材とした作品を募集しています。

人類は常に発見を求めて進化してきました。発見とは個人的なものであり、科学技術のブレークスルーであり、社会の変化、つまり人類の日々の生活に大きな変革をもたらす新しい概念であることでもあります。写真誕生以来、多くの偉大な人々は世界を探検し、疑問を投げかけるツールとしてカメラを活用してきました。彼らは画像のもつパワーを使い常に新しい何かに光をあててきました。

神の降臨、発明、常識が覆される瞬間。私たちは常に何か新しいものを求め続けています。風景、人物、科学、政治的または経済的な変化、そして抽象的なものまで、内容を問わず皆様のご応募をお待ちしています。 

提出作品は創造性に富んだものが推奨されていますが、テーマに沿っていなければならない点にご注意ください。一つのシリーズは5~10枚の写真から構成されたもので、テーマ「Seeing Beyond – Discoveries」に沿ったストーリーを語る力があり、また作品として一貫性のあるものでなければなりません。

技術、被写体などを問わず異なるタイプの応募作品をお待ちしています。すべての応募には必ず作品の背景にあるストーリーの概要を説明する文章を添付してください。

応募締め切り:2020年2月4日、13:00(GMT)
