Jumpstart your photography career by participating in our Streetstyle Photography Competition. This exciting opportunity invites aspiring photographers from Berlin – including students, graduates, and young professionals – to showcase their talent, with the chance to have their work published and become an official photographer for the next Berlin Fashion Week.

Participants are invited to submit five captivating photos across different categories, which will be carefully evaluated by our expert jury: Josepha Rodriguez, Kenya Tay, Kristian Schuller, Manuel Almeida Vergara and Nina Klein. We encourage submissions that capture the essence of the vibrant moments unfolding on the streets outside the show venues during Berlin Fashion Week. Through our official Berlin Fashion Week Schedule, participants can easily locate the venues hosting different shows.

Unleash your creativity and showcase your perspective through the lens!

There will be an official publication of the winning photo series in the online and print issues of Berliner Zeitung. Furthermore, the winner will be hired as an official photographer for the next edition of Berlin Fashion Week. This entails not only publishing your work on the official BFW channels and potential press features but also includes compensation for your effort.

Additionally, you will be included in the FCG Photo Database, with the prospect of engagement in future projects with the Fashion Council Germany.

Join the competition and capture the essence of Berlin's fashion scene, giving you the chance to define the visual language of the next Fashion Week.

*Can only be fulfilled if FCG is re-commissioned by the Berlin Senate Department for Economic Affairs, Energy and Public Enterprises for the next edition of BFW in 2025
