With a record number of entries this time of 108 participants, “gute aussichten” (good prospects) has now firmly established itself as one of the most important prizes for up and coming photographers in the field of contemporary photo art. Once again, the winners of this prestigious competition will first be presented in the Museum Marta Herford before the exhibition embarks on a tour of numerous international locations. The successful project offers outstanding photography graduates a framework to present their work to a wider public.

The selection of young German photographers gives us a look at current developments and new trends in photography, extending to installative forms. Thus the Marta Herford is again placing the focus on an artistic discipline which in recent years has been receiving important impulses, in particular from German artists.

This year’s award winners are: Henning Bode (Fachhochschule Hannover), Susann Dietrich (HBK Braunschweig), Saskia Groneberg (Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart), Svetlana Mychkine (Fachhochschule Dortmund), Nicolai Rapp (Fachhochschule Bielefeld), Fabian Rook (Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel) und Jakob Weber (HAWK Hildesheim).
