»Vonovia Award für Fotografie 2021/22«

Winners 2021:

Julia Autz (1st prize) | Karina-Sirkku Kurz (2nd prize) | Jana Sophia Nolle (3rd prize) | Sarah Grethe (young talent award)

At the virtual presentation of the VONOVIA AWARD FOR PHOTOGRAPHY 2021 in Hamburg, the winners were honored in 2021: Julia Autz (1st prize), Karina-Sirkku Kurz (2nd prize) and Jana Sophia Nolle (3rd prize) won in the category » Best photo series «. Sarah Grethe is this year’s winner of the young talent award. For the first time in the history of the VONOVIA AWARD FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, all of the lavish prizes go exclusively to women photographers. Your work will be recognized by the expert jury in particular for the fact that it reinterprets the topic of HOME in a new and contemporary way with complex narrative styles. Important questions of our society today – such as the behavior of adolescents in a repressive system (Julia Autz), the self-optimization of one’s own body (Karina-Sirkku Kurz) and the relationship between rich and poor (Jana Sophia Nolle) – are the focus of her photographic explorations . The search for clues in one’s own family and the topic of culture of remembrance (Sarah Grethe) are also examined.

The VONOVIA AWARD FOR PHOTOGRAPHY was announced for the fifth time on the theme of HOME / ZUHAUSE. Launched in 2017, the award comprises three main prizes in the category “Best Photo Series” and a Young Photographer Award for photographers under 26 years of age. The award is endowed with prize money of 42,000 euros and is awarded annually.
