The winners of the photo book competition and the U25 Photo Challenge

“Into the great wide open” is the name of the most beautiful photo book in Switzerland. It was done as part of the photo book competition chosen by Bookfactory and Photo Münsingen and comes from Matthias Notter. The price of the U25 Photo Challenge 2024 goes to Micha Bigler.

For the second time, Photo Münsingen, together with the main sponsor Bookfactory, looked for the best, most original or most unusual photo books in Switzerland. After a pre-selection, the jury – consisting of Brigitte Aeberhard-Baur, Sonja Berger and Beat Feller – evaluated the ten best creations.

Matthias Notter won first prize with his photo book “Into the great wide open”. The jury was impressed by its content concept, impressive implementation and very good images. Thanks to originally used AI and good texts with a quiet sense of humor, a travel report becomes a photo book that you not only enjoy looking at, but also read.

Second and third places go to Nadia Knechtle with the book “Stadtmomente” and Manuel C. Studer with “Rayim-Bek”.

The U25 Photo Challenge also went into the second round. Once again, photographers aged 25 or younger were able to demonstrate their passion for photography. This year the theme is “Music”.

Micha Bigler, Amira Kopp and Lukas Affolter are on the podium here. The 28 submitted images were judged by Jan Schmidt, Florian Biedermann and Yves Leneveu. They evaluated image design, quality, creativity and the connection to the topic of “music”.

The most beautiful photo books and the pictures from the U25 Photo Challenge are on display at Photo Münsingen until Sunday, May 12th.
