Leica Oskar Barnack Award & Leica European Publishers Award for Photography

Leica Inventor Oskar Barnack (1879 - 1936)

Germany’s Leica is now calling for entries for its next international “Leica Oskar Barnack Award” and “Leica European Publishers Award for Photography” competitions for professional photographers.

The annual Leica Oskar Barnack Award (deadline January 31, 2008) is given to the photographer “whose sure powers of observation most vividly express man’s relationship to his environment in a single photograph or photo story consisting of minimum 8 up to 12 pictures.” This photo contest honors the memory of Oskar Barnack (1879-1936), inventor of the Leica camera.

The “Leica European Publishers Award for Photography” (deadline March 21, 2008) has been one of the culture projects of Leica Camera AG ever since it was first conferred in 1994. Eligible entries to this competition are unpublished photo projects in book form. The winning work will be published in a circulation of 5000 copies.
