Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2022 • The shortlisted candidates


The Leica Oskar Barnack Award (LOBA) is being granted this year for the 42nd time. The jury has now determined the 2022 LOBA shortlist of 12 candidates, selected from among proposals submitted by approximately 60 top-ranking international photography experts from 34 countries. For the first time this year, the Leica Oskar Barnack Award Newcomer – which goes to a photographer under the age of 30 – has been selected in collaboration with, and from among the proposals submitted by, international institutions and universities from 15 countries. From Germany, it was the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hanover, with its highly respected Photojournalism and Documentary Photography department, that was involved. The other partners included European universities in France, Great Britain, Italy and Austria, as well as others from around the world.

On 20th October 2022, the winners in the Main and Newcomer categories will be honored during an award ceremony, within the framework of a large Celebration of Photography, during which the Leica Hall of Fame Award will also be presented. Following the award ceremony, all the LOBA series will be on display in a large exhibition at the Ernst Leitz Museum, produced with the kind support of WhiteWall. A comprehensive accompanying catalog will be presented in conjunction. After the exhibition in Wetzlar, the LOBA 2022 presentation will be shown at other Leica Galleries and at photo festivals around the world.

The LOBA is one of the most highly endowed and prestigious awards in the field of photography. The winner of the LOBA receives 40,000 euros and Leica camera equipment valued at 10,000 euros; the winner of the Newcomer Award receives 10,000 euros and a Leica Q2.
