Swiss Photo Award: 18 of 681 submitted works nominated

681 works were submitted for this year's Swiss Photo Award. 18 pictures were nominated and are eligible for the main prize of 15,000 Swiss francs.

Which photographer has taken the best Swiss picture will be decided on Friday evening. Awards will also be presented to six category winners, who will each receive 5,000 Swiss francs, including photographers from the fields of advertising, fashion, press and architecture.

The presentation of the Swiss Photo Award is also the prelude to the week-long exhibition of the best Swiss photographic works at Zurich's Unterwerk Selnau. The exhibition is accompanied by several side events for professionals and amateurs, including the 1st Zurich Photo Night. It will take place on May 27 and 28 and will feature a special program of guided tours and parties. (SDA)
