In Anton's Berlin, photographer Kristian Schuller sets out to capture Berlin city life with his camera. Schuller shows various characters from Berlin's nightlife - a nightlife that the city of Berlin stands for worldwide, characterized by artists, actors, musicians, and all those wonderful birds of paradise.

Sanna Kannisto's metier is nature photography. With her photographs of birds, she captures moments of extraordinary beauty that are both analytical and passionate. To do this, she uses her own working method and photographs the animals against a white background that is specially illuminated for this purpose.

 

Time Is No Longer Round by Santeri Tuori and the photo book Heiter bis wolkig were awarded "Bronze".

Tuori's compositions of trees, tangled branches and clouds are subtle montages that arrange countless shots next to and on top of each other. The results are almost abstract nature photographs of captivating complexity, which, in harmony with the sublime representation of nature, lead the viewer to see beyond himself. 

Heiter bis wolkig_DFBP

Heiter bis wolkig (Cheerful to cloudy) is the formulation of the evening weather forecast at the end of the news, which promises everything and nothing. Home - what is it and where can it be recognized or identified? The three young photographers David Carreno Hansen, Sven Stolzenwald, and Christian Werner roam the country in search of the "typically German", which fascinates and alienates them at the same time.
