Times under pressure - competition "category single picture"
From 12 September 12th until 25 October in the old town of Lenzburg.
We are very pleased to announce the winning pictures of the photo competition "Single pictures".
We would like to thank all photographers who took part in the competition. The complex theme, which falls at a special historical moment, was realised in an extremely varied and creative way. The many pictures received from all over the world tell of a wide variety of aspects: personal upheavals, concern for nature, feelings of insecurity, but also the desire to devote oneself to beauty and to observe beauty in order to escape the pressure of times.
The selection of the pictures was made by the jury on the basis of such criteria as the direct and the representation of the subject matter in a single picture, as well as the need to convey complementary points of view of the participants.
Special thanks to the festival's jury, who judged each picture received with passion: Margherita Guerra, Director Fotofestival Lenzburg; Kathryn Cook-Pellegrin, Head of Creative Content - International Committee of the Red Cross; Gilles Steinmann, Director of Photography NZZ; Audrey Hoareau, Curator of Photo Basel 2020, independent curator; Guido Schmidtke, Picture Editor STERN.
The pictures will be on display in the shop windows of Lenzburg's old town from the 12th September 2020. We would like to express our thanks to all the shops that participated in the initiative and worked together to transform the Centre of Lenzburg's old town into an outdoor photo gallery.
During the festival the public will vote for their favourite pictures. The winner of the public vote will receive CHF 1,000, generously donated by SWL Energie AG. Many thanks.
At the beginning of the festival we will announce how to vote by SMS.
