Freiburg Youth Photography Prize

All photography enthusiasts between the ages of six and 21 can participate in this year’s Freiburg Youth Photo Prize until September 18. Under the slogan “Close to Her”, the Photo Contest invites you to submit a photo or photo series of up to six photos. Photos should be “close”. This can be a touching story, a picture that conveys a certain feeling, illustrates an attitude towards life, or captures an intimate moment. It’s not about the perfect camera or the best Photoshop skills, it’s about the right moment. The photos will then be evaluated by a jury and big prizes will await the winners in different age groups.

For all reading and writing enthusiasts aged 10-16, the Reading Labs will be taking place for the first time this year. Stories can be written and/or illustrated with professional authors and illustrators. The acquaintance of Christian Duda, Lena Steffinger, Benjamin Tinti and Neil Palmtag will take place on September 4 at Litterhaus Freiburg.

However, we are often not aware of the fact that we continue to reproduce biases and behavioral patterns to this day. “What does colonialism actually mean and where do we face it in our daily lives?” You can find out with your children from the age of eight on a family tour of the Augustinian Museum.
