The DPZ Photo Prize is granted to employees who have been able to capture special moments in their everyday research or work life in an impressive photo. The prize is awarded in the three categories Aesthetics, Originality and Science and is endowed with 200€ for the winners. From an overall total of 109 entries, a jury consisting of members of the DPZ Sponsorship Society has already selected the 10 best pictures in each category. Their criteria included selection of the motif and reference to the DPZ, image composition, technical quality, originality (of the situation) as well as the aesthetics of the presentation.
The 30 best photographs are now on display in an exhibition in the foyer of the DPZ. All employees and guests are cordially invited to vote for their personal favourites on site. The winners will be announced at the DPZ's internal Christmas party on 19 December.
The exhibition in the foyer of the DPZ is free of charge and remains open to visitors until the end of the year from Monday to Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and on Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
