#wirsagenDANKE: pictures of the Corona heroes

The #wirsagenDANKE initiative aims to portray people who have achieved great things in the past few months. Mathias Kniepeiss, who would have exhibited at Photo Münsingen 2020, is co-initiator of the campaign.

Mathias Kniepeiss is a photographer in Vienna. At Photo Münsingen 2020 he would have shown his exhibition “Cave of Drones” from the Drone Champions League. This, like Photo Münsingen, has been postponed to 2021 for known reasons.

Along with Mar­tin Meier­eg­ger and other photographers, he launched the initiative #We say thank you. The idea is to portray people and groups of people who have achieved great things and who have earned thanks and recognition for their commitment. The portraits and stories should result in a unique, exciting document of the times.

The project is presented on Mathias Kniepeiss' website. In Switzerland, the project is run by Paul Merki, corona.photo and Andrea Camen unterstützt.

The edited images can be viewed by June 30, 2020 under the link


uploaded. The conditions of participation are also listed here.

The aim is also to select the best pictures by a professional jury and present them in an exhibition and at photo events. Perhaps, in addition to the 20 best pictures from our competition “Living and taking photos in times of Corona”, we will also see works from this initiative at Photo Münsingen 2021!
