Photo London x Hahnemühle Student Award returns

Photo London x Hahnemühle Student Award returns for its second year, platforming outstanding works by 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. Now in its second year, this 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.

How it works

Faculty members at UK universities offering photography courses are 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 shortlist up to 10 nominated artists whose work will be showcased at Photo London (16 – 19 May 2024). The panel will then select one overall winner who will be announced at a special ceremony at the fair on Saturday 18 May.


The prize

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. The winner will receive a trip to the Hahnemühle mill in Germany and the printing of 5-10 artworks on their preferred Hahnemühle Digital FineArt papers, either at the Hahnemühle UK office or at a Hahnemühle Certified Studio.
