The After Nature . Ulrike Crespo Photography Prize is awarded annually to two individuals or groups aged 35 years or older with an existing exhibition and publication practice. This international prize enables the winners to realize their projects on the topic of “Photography after Nature.” The prize carries a cash prize of €40,000 for each winner or winning group, and includes an exhibition at C/O Berlin, a joint publication, and curatorial support during the planning stages.
An expert committee nominates artists for the prize and invites them to apply. Unsolicited applications are not accepted. Then, an international jury selects two of the proposals. The prize is managed by junior curator Katharina Täschner. The first two winners will be announced in early 2024.
