Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The DGPh History of Photography Research Award 2014 will be open for all elements of research into photography’s many aspects. Besides aspects of traditional history and theory of photography, topics will be considered that deal with photography’s social meaning, or the impact that the medium has had on society. The applicant's work should represent an autonomous, innovative, and original contribution to these areas. The award is open to researchers from all fields.
Applications and manuscripts for the DGPh History of Photography Research Award may be submitted in either English or German. Applications should consist of a published or unpublished manuscript produced during the last two years before the deadline. Project outlines, or yet unfinished manuscripts etc. will not be accepted.
Allocation will be the decision of an expert jury. The jury will publish its reasons to reward the winning entry. The jury consists of the chairpersons of the History and Archives section of the DGPh, the previous prize winner plus one or a group of invited counsellor(s).
The decision of the jury will be final and binding. The award is honored with a total of 3,000 Euro. The jury holds the right to split the prize between two applicants in equal parts. The award will be handed over at a public event organized by the DGPh.
