THE BEST OF MAGAZINES AND INTERNET, PHOTOGRAPHY, ADVERTISING, ONLINE AND EDITORIAL DESIGN

up

House of Photography 9 June — 14 August 2011

The exhibition “VisualLeader – the best of magazines and Internet” features exciting picture series, fascinating photos, original advertisements, creative websites, and much more. For the eighth time, the nominees and winners of the LeadAwards will be presented at House of Photography at Deichtorhallen Hamburg. Photo series, magazine features, ads and websites will be on show – the best of what German magazines had to offer in 2010.

The exhibition encompasses all the works that last year won one of the coveted LeadAwards, Germany’s top print and online media award. The award winners on show include internationally renowned photographers and artists such as Nan Goldin, Tim Hetherington, Daniel Josefsohn, Peter Langer, Peter Lindbergh, Taryn Simon, Hedi Slimane, Juergen Teller, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jonas Unger, Harf Zimmermann and many more.

“VisualLeader” is not only the largest exhibition of its kind in Germany, but also has a very special format: In contrast to other competitions for creative professionals, you cannot enter the LeadAwards yourself. An independent jury of experts combs through the entire year’s issues of around 400 German magazines and picks out prize-worthy articles. A high-profile jury then judges and evaluates them, ensuring a completely independent and truly comprehensive judgment. Those awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze awards can rightly claim to be among the best of the best.
