The LUMIX Festival as a kick-off event...

... for an international photojournalism class at the Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts...

We are proud to announce that the 5th LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism will be the kick-off event for the establishment of an international class in the photojournalism and documentary photography degree program at the Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts!

The five festival-days will be a great opportunity to strengthen the international contacts to other universities and their students. The photojournalism and documentary photography degree program aims to install an international class in the summer semester of 2017 in order to promote the process of internationalization at the Hanover University. For the international get-together the LUMIX Festival offers an attractive support program and is the perfect event for photography students to connect and form relationships.

The first guests have confirmed their visit: As to previous LUMIX Festivals Professor Rita Reed from the photojournalism degree program at the University of Missouri will visit the festival with a group of photojournalism students. The students will visit Hanover and the festival as a part of a summer experience.
