Competition for the 7th PORTRAITS Photography Award on the theme “COUNTERPARTS” runs until 29.11.2021

Until November 29, you can submit series of works for the 7th PORTRAITS HELLERAU Photography Award 2022 on the theme “Counterparts” via the website www.portraits-hellerau.com. Once again, the jury will award four prizes with a total value of 10,000 EUR. The entry fee is 50 EUR (50% discount for pupils and students).

The current theme “COUNTERPARTS” has been deliberately chosen by the newly assembled jury, which this year includes photographer Francesca Cesari from Bologna as well as photographer and curator Daniel Blochwitz: after the pandemic year and a half, photographic introspections are currently often about self-images, likenesses, self-portraits, counter-designs in the image – but also about the opposite, the other, the opposite.

The winners of the PORTRAITS Awards 2022 will be announced at the vernissage on April 7, 2022 (1st prize: 5,000 EUR, 2nd prize: 2,000 EUR, 3rd prize: 1,000 EUR, residence prize: a working residency at HELLERAU – European Center for the Arts followed by a solo exhibition). All works of the final round will be presented in the large annual exhibition at the Technische Sammlungen Dresden. And at HELLERAU, the current Residence Prize winner Natalia Kepesz (Poland) will show her work door to door with her successor.

A series of public events and a number of curated solo exhibitions, the so-called “satellites,” round out the competition program. The new PORTRAITS exhibition catalog, seventh in total, is published by Kunstagentur Dresden.
