Warmth leaves no one out in the cold because it is pure light and energy. Sun, fire, light—warmth manifests itself to people in abundant and diverse forms. The task of the Vattenfall Photo Prize this year was to interpret this concept freely and capture it in the context of a photographic series.


Two-hundred artists entered what is today the most generously funded competition for young photographers in Germany. A jury of diverse professionals was assembled, including Ingo Taubhorn, Deichtorhallen Hamburg; Stephan Erfurt, C/O Berlin; Robert Lebeck, photographer; Rainer Knauber, Vattenfall Europe AG; and Hanna Marie Ebert, curator of the Vattenfall Collection. The group studied the entries and selected the strongest among them.
