This year Photo London is delighted to announce a further prize to support students enrolled in photography degrees at UK universities: the Photo London X Hahnemühle Student Award.

The Award is an exciting new opportunity for students enrolled in photography degrees at UK universities. The aim of the award is to bring developing photographers’ portfolios to international attention and support early-career talent within the industry. This new initiative builds on Photo London’s ongoing commitment to supporting and investing in emerging photographic artists, which is evident in the Fair’s Discovery section and the Photo London x Nikon Emerging Photographer of the Year Award.

Faculty members at UK universities offering photography courses have been invited to nominate students from these courses. The nominated students will be invited to propose a specific Hahnemühle paper that would best suit the printing of their work. The award’s judging panel will then shortlist up to 10 nominated artists whose work will be showcased at Photo London 11 to 14 May 2023. The panel will then select one overall winner who will be announced at a special ceremony at the fair on Saturday 13 May.

In addition to reaching an international audience by presenting their work at Photo London, the shortlisted artists will be invited to one of Hahnemühle’s UK-certified print studios to oversee the production of their exhibition prints. All shortlisted artists will receive VIP passes for the fair. The winner will receive a residency including time at the Hahnemühle mill in Germany and oversee the production of a new body of photographic work using Hahnemühle’s internationally respected printing papers.
