Fotofestival Lenzburg 6th edition

We are pleased to announce the open call for the 6th edition of Fotofestival Lenzburg. The competition is open to all types of photography and is aimed at photographers from near and far. A distinguished international jury will select the projects that show a deep understanding of the theme “SYNTHESIS” and exhibit a unique artistic style.

We understand synthesis as a process that enhances something by combining multiple elements. Yet, the resulting ensemble is greater than its individual parts – not because the individual parts don’t matter or don’t matter equally, but because they fundamentally do. More on the topic here.
