The selection process has been finalised: the organisers of the fourth Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism have determined 60 reportages to be presented at this year's event. From 18 to 22 June 2014, Hanover's former expo grounds will be transformed into a vast photography exhibition. The festival is organised by the city's new Foundation for Photography in collaboration with Hanover University, as well as the photojournalists' association "Freelens".
Around 1200 applications from 71 countries were received. The 60 reportages and photographic essays chosen by the jury address a wide range of themes – from Kiev's Maidan Square or the moving story of a Danish girl with Downs Syndrome, to a humorous portrayal of a Polish wedding.
"The level of quality of the exhibited works suggests that this will be one of the best and most broadly-themed Lumix Festivals to date", says jury member Rolf Nobel, Professor for Photography at Hanover University.
Tickets are 10 euros and are valid for all five days of the exhibition.
