PUNKT 2015

Share:

For the past ten years, the German Academy of Engineering and Technology (Acatech) has honoured outstanding examples of technical journalism. For their 2015 competition, the Academy introduces the new PUNKT Award in the categories of Multimedia and Photo. In addition, the Academy will continue to give out a photography grant to support the making of a field-related reportage.

Submitted works should depict technology in a way that inspires public debate on innovations and their possible applications, as well as encouraging new angles and viewpoints.

The competition's Multimedia category is aimed at journalistic formats whose use of online multi-media presentations offers a better comprehension of technology and engineering-based topics. Different media such as text, images, video and audio should be combined to create a higher experiential value than could be achieved in a single-media demonstration.

Submissions for the Photo category can be made in the form of single images, a photographic series, or a combination of both. Lastly, the Photography Grant offers photographers the opportunity to make an ambitious project on a technology or engineering-related topic a reality.

Submissions for all categories are now open:

1. Multimedia: personal applications or third-party nominations accepted
Submissions close on 18 May 2015

2. Photo: submissions of up to three single images and/or one photo series
Submissions close on 13 July 2015

3. Photography Grant: application in the form of a proposal, outlining the project idea
Submissions close on 13 July 2015

Each category winner stands to receive 5,000 euros.

The competition is open to anyone – from journalists to bloggers, web designers, editorial teams as well as any alternative providers of multi-media journalism.

The awards ceremony takes place on 20 October 2015 as part of the Acatech Gala in Berlin.
