Photographers from Berlin and elsewhere are invited to submit a photo project focussed on Berlin’s many airports, which, if accepted, will be included in the Europäischer Monat der Fotografie Berlin.

The Terminal Photo Contest takes the airports of Berlin as its subject matter. Tegel Airport is intact and supposedly fully operational, Tempelhof’s operations are indefinitely suspended and Berlin-Brandenburg is in some sort of construction limbo. No other city shares this kind of airport history.

While politicians and experts are hotly debating the use and future of these airports, the Photo Contest offers the opportunity to share your artistic vision in the photographic medium regarding this polarizing subject.The submitted work should deal with Berlin‘s airports but it can be documentary, staged and manipulated or even conceptual work.

The best images will be judged and selected by an international jury and then presented in a thematic group exhibition at the Projektraum | PhotoWerkBerlin in the framework of the European Month of Photography in October 2014.

The submission deadline is August 24, 2014.


Up to 10 images along with a project description and a CV (each up to one page) can be submitted.

The submission will only be accepted as a single PDF document with a resolution of 1200 x 800 px. The original material can be analog or digital. There is no entry fee.
