The "wortimbild" competition, which is an international photography competition dealing with the challenge of literature, is now open. This competition is aimed at photographers, and is for works inspired by specific works of literature. 

Idea of the Competition

The idea of initiating an international photography competition, which relies on literature as a source of inspiration, was created in 2011. The intention was to create an exciting interplay between photography and literature, to give photographers the opportunity to submit photographic works on the subject of literature. The competition is curious about which literary source of inspiration will they choose, and above all, how they implement their image idea. The stories, novels or poems inspire interesting photographic perspectives and thus bring the literature into the focus of the beholder. Photographers turn into “image poets”. Words in images connect the world of photography with the world of literature. Both concern themselves with the art of observation, choosing a section of reality, transporting individual content out of direct experience, and changing perception. A successful competition depends on being generously supported.

Eligibility criteria:

  1. The choice of literary form (poetry, prose, drama etc.) is open.
  2. Only one entry per person will be accepted.
  3. The entry shall not exceed 9 MB.

The main prizes are:

  1. 800€ for First Place
  2. 500€ for Second Place
  3. 300€ for Third Place

Notes:

  • 10 winners will be chosen by a jury.
  • The winning photographs will be exhibited as part of the German Language Literature Festival taking place from the 26th June to 30th June 2019 in Klagenfurt, Austria.
  • They will be shown in the garden of the Carinthian Regional Broadcasting Studios during this time.
