To mark the 300th birthday of the Prussian King Frederick II (Frederick the Great) on 18 October 2011 the German Historical Institute London will be holding an event (lecture and discussion) on the topic ‘Frederick the Great in the Visual Media of his Day’.
In conjunction with this event the Institute is also holding a photo competition and will exhibit the entries. These should be your own photos that contribute in some way to the topic (this includes photos of your own, collages, paintings, drawings, sculptures etc.) and should be submitted by 10 September 2011 (postmark)
The prize is an invitation to the exhibition opening in London for 2 people including flights (economy class) and 2 nights in a good hotel.
Conditions of Entry
Entries must be printed photos – A4 or A3 – appropriate to the topic of Frederick the Great.
Only photos related to the above topic can be accepted and are eligible for the prize. Each participant may submit up to 3 photos (max.) A brief statement should describe/explain the photo. Please put your name on the back of each photo. We regret that we cannot accept entries from anyone under the age of 18.
Copyright notes on the photo will not be accepted for the competition. By submitting the photo you confirm that you own all rights to it and that it is free of third-party rights. The winners agree that the GHI London may exhibit and publish the photos. Any recognisable, living people in the photos must likewise agree to publication of the photos. The photos will be judged by a jury appointed by the Institute. The jury will decide on the winner and will also select 30-40 runners-up from all the entries. These will also be shown at the exhibition. The winner and the runners-up will be notified by the Director of the Institute by the end of September at the latest.
By participating you confirm your acceptance of the conditions of the photo competition. No recourse to legal action is possible.
Members of the GHIL staff may not take part in the competition, but may submit photos for the exhibition.
