The jury consists of four to six photographers from the Foto Koch team, who all work in different genres in order to have as many different skills as possible in the selection process. This team selects the best 20-30 images, which can then be evaluated by up to 60 people in an internal vote. The winning images are then selected from this result.

After the end of the photo competition, a jury will select the best photos. This can take one to two weeks. The winners will then be notified by email. As soon as we receive feedback from everyone, the result will be published on our blog. All participants will then also be informed by email. This can take up to four weeks in total.
