Since 1978, the History and Archives department of the German Society for Photography (DGPh) has given out an annual award to honour an academic research paper on the theory and history of photography.
The award also supports topics such as the exploration of the cultural meaning of photography, its legacy and its impact on society.
Researchers from all academic fields are invited to submit their manuscripts, which should represent an independent, innovative and original approach to their chosen theme.
Applications and submitted papers can be written in either German or English, and are accepted until 19 August 2014.
