Dear fellow photographers, we are very excited to announce the sixth edition of The Felix Schoeller Photo Award. All professional photographers worldwide are invited to apply in three categories for the Felix Schoeller Photo Award 2023, the Best Work by an Emerging Photographer and the German Peace Prize for Photography. A total of 30,000 euros in prize money will be awarded. The closing date for entries is January 15, 2023.
“Portrait”, “Photojournalism” and “Sustainability” – those are the categories for the Felix Schoeller Photo Award 2023. A prize money of 5,000 euros will be awarded in each of the three competition categories.
The category “Best Work by an Emerging Photographer” is intended to recognize special talent in photography: Photographers in their studies, professional training or photo assistance.

“In 2023, the German Peace Prize for Photography takes on even greater significance: Together with our hometown of Osnabrück, we present this award – at the place where the Peace of Westphalia was concluded 375 years ago. This anniversary reminds us that peace is more important than ever, especially in the current political situation. As a company, we see ourselves as having a social responsibility to underscore the importance of peace. Making the pursuit of peace a photographic theme and communicating it is a conscious symbiosis of our corporate roots with the special role played by the cities of Münster and Osnabrück in promoting peace in Europe,” says Hans-Christoph Gallenkamp, CEO of the Felix Schoeller Group.

The German Peace Prize for Photography honors works that deal photographically and conceptually with the theme of “peace”. The definition of the term “peace” is to be explicitly broad: From peace between peoples and countries to peaceful coexistence in the city and country, in families or in groups, to the pictorial representation of the inner peace of individuals. The winner of the German Peace Prize for Photography will receive prize money of 10,000 euros.
The winners will be announced and honored at a festive awards ceremony on May 4, 2023. The award-winning photographs as well as the works of the nominees will then be on display in an extensive exhibition at the Museumquartier Osnabrück.
