Felix Schoeller Photo Award 2015 Announced

Germany –  This international competition for professional photographers has established itself worldwide. Over 1,200 entries, participants from 65 countries, 200 series of photographs entered for the Emerging Photographer Award alone, 30 nominees from 17 countries and at the end of the day six proud winners. The Felix Schoeller Photo Award has already established itself as an international competition for professional photographers although this is only the second time it has been held. All the winning and nominated photos can be seen in our permanent digital exhibition at www.felix-schoeller-photoaward.com. The Gold Award went to Karolin Klüppel from Berlin. She wowed the jury, headed by internationally renowned portrait photographer Michael Dannenmann, with her work entitled “Mädchenland 2013-2014,” which made her not only the winner in the portrait category but also the overall winner of the competition. Born in Kassel in 1985, she studied photography there at the city’s School of Art and Design. Her career got off to a flying start with exhibitions in Arles, Geneva and New York. “Mädchenland 2013-2014” or “Kingdom of Girls” is part of a photo series for National Geographic. The other prizewinners are Sandra Hoyn with her work “Displaced by Palm Oil: Indonesia‘s Last Orangutans” in the landscape/nature category, Sebastian Mölleken with his work “Kitchen in a Home for Asylum Seekers” in the architecture/industry category, Christian Werner with his photo series entitled “74” in the photojournalism/editorial category and Thomas Friedrich Schäfer with his work “Experiential Spaces” in the free choice/conceptual photography category. The Emerging Photographer Award sponsored by Phase One – the world’s leading manufacturer of open-platform, medium-format cameras and solutions – went to Mohammad Fahim Ahamed Riyad from Bangladesh for his  “Children of the Dead River,” a work that is highly charged – both emotionally and in terms of its social commentary. Among the nominees were many photographers who have already won international prizes. They include American Austin Irving, whose photographs can currently be seen in Los Angeles, Nigel Dickinson and Alex Masi from Great Britain and Laerke Posselt from Denmark, who is celebrated as one of Scandinavia’s leading professional photographers.  Her photographs have been published many times in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Le Monde.
