    The 5th Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism invites young photojournalists to compete for one of the 60 photography exhibitions, the FREELENS Award and two Honorable Mentions.

    Applications can consist of slideshows, multimdedia-reportages, scrollytelling stories or web documentaries. Even purely filmed / cinematic works are accepted if they are web-reportages shot with a photographic view. Documentary (short) films however are not allowed.

    Only one reportage, essay or series (i.e. portrait series) with photojournalistic character can be submitted per applicant. The work shall consist of at least 15 to a maximum of 30 photographs. The work may already be published or awarded at other festivals (but this is not a precondition).

    The Festival aims to be a platform for discussions, a picture show and a talent forum that appeals to professional picture editors and an interested expert audience as well as those who simply love photography.

    The exhibitions also accompany an attractive program which includes portfolio-reviews, lectures, panel-discussions, guided tours and a technique showroom. The 2016 Lumix Festival is scheduled for 15th June through 19th June, 2016 at the Design Center in Hanover, Germany.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open worldwide to young photojournalists, photographers, students of photography and trainees who are not older than 35 at the time of application.


    A team of curators from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hannover and the photojournalist's organisation FREELENS will choose the 60 works to be exhibited at the festival from the pool of submissions.

    After that, a five-person international jury chooses the winner of the FREELENS Award out of the 60 exhibited stories. The prize includes 10,000 Euro (approx. 10,820 USD) and a trophy.

    Moreover, an international jury of multimedia experts also chooses the winner of the LUMIX Multimedia Award out of the featured multimedia productions. The prize includes a prize money of 5,000 Euro (approx. 5,400 USD).
