BBA Photography Prize 2021

BBA Gallery in Berlin announces the open call for the BBA Photography Prize 2021. The BBA Photography Prize awards international photographers irrespective of their background with several Prizes incl. a solo show, cash prizes & more. The competition includes two exhibitions - one at Berlin Photo Week in August and one at Kühlhaus Berlin in October. Berlin Photo Week is a prestigious community event and industry fair. Kühlhaus Berlin is one of the city’s most favoured venues for cultural events.

The BBA Gallery want to nurture artistic growth by connecting creatives from around the world and give them and their work the opportunity to be seen and recognised for their artistry.

So whether you are a seasoned fine art photographer with an existing track-record, a promising talent at the beginning of your journey or simply super-enthusiastic about photography: The Photography Prize 2021 is a great opportunity to show your works to a broad public.

To ensure a high standard and an unbiased evaluation, a jury of experts will determine which applicants get featured as part of the longlist, which photographs will be exhibited in August 2021 as part of Berlin Photo Week, whose works will be on display at the BBA group exhibition in October and which photographers ultimately get awarded with 1 of the 5 prizes – the 1st price including a solo show.

A jury of experts debates the entries and ensures an unbiased evaluation and high quality standard. Photographers can enter between 1-15 images and compete for 5 Prizes. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd Prize and the People’s Choice Award are awarding photographers for their visual excellence, storytelling, conceptual thinking, technical craftsmanship and subject depth over a series of works. The One Shot Award however is aimed at photo enthusiasts who can enter with one single image - their shot of a lifetime. BBA Gallery will feature the best applications through their social media profiles and website.
