Photo from the work «Between the years» by Valentin Goppel

Valentin Goppel, a 7th-semester student, convinced the jury of the Leica Oskar Barnack Award in the category “Newcomer” with his project “Between the Years.” In his photographs, the student deals with the lives of young people during the Corona pandemic. A few weeks ago, Valentin Goppel was awarded the VGH Photo Award.

The Leica Oskar Barnack Award is internationally regarded with a high reputation. The best newcomer will receive 10,000 euros and a Leica camera.

The award-winning student Nanna Heitmann is also on the shortlist for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award once again this year: she already won the prize in 2019.
