About the E1|R1 Photo Award
The European Long-Distance Trail E1 from Nordkapp (Norway) to South Italy, and the European Bicycle Route R1 from Boulougne-sur-Mer to St. Petersburg, via London, only cross each other once. This crossing point is in the Teutoburg Forest and is both the cause and the namesake for the international E1|R1 Photo Award – created by the competence centre for hiking WALK in Detmold and supported by the German Hiking Association (DWV) and the European Ramblers’ Association (ERA). The aim is to use the art of photography to raise awareness of two of the most important routes for the many thousand hikers and cyclists in Europe.
The 1st international photo competition is calling for amateur and professional photographers, in separate competitions, to submit their most beautiful and spectacular photos of the direct surroundings of both routes. Prizes with a total worth of around €50,000 are up for grabs and will be awarded by independent juries on the 118th German Hiking Day 2018 in Detmold.
The submissions period for the photo competition begins on 1st December 2017 and ends on 31st March 2018. Fans of photography and professional photographers can submit their photos in four categories: Culture and Landscape, Man and Nature, Heaven and Earth, and Animals and Nature. Professional photographers must always submit a series of minimum 3 and maximum 4 subjects, whereas for the amateur award, only one can be submitted.
