5th. Lumix Festival

The 5th LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism takes place from Wednesday, June 15th until Sunday, June 19th, 2016 in Hanover Germany. Staged every two years the festival attracts young photojournalists from all over the world. All students and professional photojournalists under the age of 35 are welcome to submit their work for the 5th LUMIX festival and based on those submissions 60 photojournalists will be invited to exhibit their work during the festival. The exhibitions accompany an attractive program which includes portfolio-reviews, lectures, panel-discussions, guided tours and a technique showroom.

The highlights of each festival day are the evening lectures delivered by internationally renowned photographers. The end of the festival is marked by the closing party on Saturday evening, which hosts the granting ceremonies of the FREELENS Award, the LUMIX Multimedia Award, the Lammerhuber Photography Award and the HAZ Audience Award.

The festival aims to be a platform for discussions, a picture show and a talent forum that appeals to professional picture editors and an interested expert audience as well as those who simply love photography. More information can be found here
