The German weekly Stern magazine has become the new co-operation partner of the LUMIX Festival. In the last weeks, Stern’s editors and the festival team have exchanged their first ideas for a pleasant and productive collaboration. On every day of the festival, these editors will offer free portfolio reviews for young photographers. What’s more, Stern’s photo editors will hold a workshop in order to give insight into the renowned magazine, showing primarily the routine in the magazine’s picture department. Andreas Trampe and Andreas Kronawitt will explain what they expect in a photographer’s portfolio, how to introduce story ideas or finished projects to the stern and how to present the results of assignments to the stern. They will also introduce the stern scholarship and former scholars will talk about their experiences working for stern. More details to follow.
