Photo journalism can be glamorous. But hard, too! 13 young photographers are given the assignment of presenting their personal view of the Berlinale in all its diversity — the red carpet, glamorous film stars, hectic staff, or behind-the-scenes secrets. Each participant decided on a theme, embarked on a search for motifs, selected images, and put together a series of works for exhibition. The photographs were shown at C/O Berlin in the Amerika Haus at the conclusion of the Berlinale. The works submitted by the participants were judged by a specialist jury, and the three best series will received an award.
With this project, C/O Berlin and the Berlinale are taking an active part in promoting young talents in photojournalism.
The participants in 2015 were: Zsolt Ficsór, Luisa Hanika, Kryštof Hlůže, Semih Lakerta, Sophie Meuresch, Clara Nebeling, Joseph Wolfgang Ohlert, Nina-Marie Raasch, Paolo Raeli, Felix Steinhoff, Furkan Temir, Margarita María Valdivieso Beltrán and Lisa Winter.
