12 European photographers appointed to work on the topic "Shifting Boundaries":

Arianna Arcara (Italy), Pierfrancesco Celada (Italy), Marthe Aune Eriksen (Norway), Jakob Ganslmeier (Germany), Margarida Gouveia (Portugal), Marie Hald (Denmark), Dominic Hawgood (United Kingdom), Robin Hinsch (Germany), Ildikó Péter (Hungary), Eivind H. Natvig (Norway), Marie Sommer (France), and Christina Werner (Austria).

The European Photo Exhibition Award—EPEA for short—aims to create a free space where socially relevant topics concerning Europe are developed and discussed by talented photographers who live and work in Europe and who are still in the early stages of establishing themselves as professional photographers. The 12 appointed photographers will translate their observations, analyses and statements on a set and socially relevant subject into a photo essay. The results will be presented in a joint touring exhibition within Europe.

This initiative by the Körber-Stiftung (Germany), the Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian—Délégation en France, Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca (Italy) and the Fritt Ord Foundation (Norway) aims to contribute to and to intensify dialogue within Europe. It also wants to support young European photographers at the beginning of their careers by providing international facilities.

Each foundation selects one curator—a specialist in photography—who is in charge of nominating three
outstanding photographers and taking on the role of mentoring and curating their exhibitions. These curators include Ingo Taubhorn (curator at the Haus der Photographie der Deichtorhallen, Hamburg), Sérgio Mah (curator and sociologist, Lisbon), Enrico Stefanelli (founder and artistic director Photolux Festival, Lucca), and Rune Eraker (freelance photographer, Oslo).

In a period of six months, the 12 photographers will produce their works on the given subject "Shifting Boundaries." For this, the appointed photographers will receive a material and production grant and will participate in two accompanying workshops, which will offer the opportunity to work together with the other awarded photographers and the four curators, intensifying dialogue on working methods and the chosen subject. Finally, a touring exhibition will offer the artists to show their works in four distinguished European exhibition venues.
