Prizes and Awards: Wolf Suschitzky Prize Open Call 2020

The Austrian Cultural Forum London invites emerging photographers based in Austria and the UK to participate in a prize in tribute of the late Austrian émigré photographer Wolf Suschitzky.

For the second edition of the prize they invite submissions by emerging photographers on the theme of ‘Life in 2020’. Because of the Covid-19-pandemic we are confronted with a new way of life and new realities. Our everyday life, our work life, our relationships, our leisure activities had to be adapted to a life in lockdown and to social distancing. With this year’s call they would like to capture these groundbreaking changes and challenging times.

Closing date for entries is 30 November 2020.

There are two prizes available:
1. An Austria based winner will receive a two-week ACF London residency + €500 cash prize
2. A UK based winner will receive a two-week Vienna/Salzburg residency + €500 cash prize
Both residencies will be offered in 2021. The winners will be invited to show their work at the ACF London in an exhibition in spring 2021.

The ACF London will invite shortlisted artists to participate in an exhibition in spring 2021. There will be limited production costs (up to £150) available to each shortlisted photographer. We cannot display artworks in excess of 2×1 meter.
