Photo Münsingen 2021 canceled and postponed

The Pho­to Münsin­gen from 13-16 May 2021 has to be canceled again due to the pandemic and postponed to the Ascension Day from 26-29 May 2022.

The organization team has been planning the Pho­to Münsin­gen 2021. Protection concepts were drawn up on the basis of the specifications and coordinated with the authorities, the program was adjusted with all parties involved and the communication measures were redesigned. The team has waited until the end, hoping that easing a physical one Pho­to Münsin­gen would have made possible. Various alternative scenarios were also examined. However, the legal requirements, the situation and development force us to cancel it again and postpone it to 2022.

Last year a team did one Pho­to Münsin­gen created virtually and offered a highly regarded competition “Living and taking photos in times of Corona” as well as online training courses and interesting reports on photographic topics.

At Auffahrt, on May 13, 2021, the competition works of the 60 photo clubs on the subject of “Urban” will be posted on the website and the winners of the «Pho­to Münsin­gen Award» announced.

The organization team plans to postpone the planned program again and carry it out during the Ascension Days 2022 from May 26th to 29th, 2022. It thanks all contributors, sponsors and partners for their work and encouraging support.

We hope and continue planning

In about two months it would be ready: From May 13th to 16th it will be Pho­to Münsin­gen 2021 planned. Although there are silver lining on the Corona horizon, further requirements would have to be relaxed so that the Pho­to Münsin­gen can be carried out with protective measures.

Nevertheless, the team is motivated and would like the photo world to be a physical one Pho­to Münsin­gen present. The organizing committee therefore decided at its meeting at the beginning of March to continue all preparatory work for the time being.

A comprehensive protection concept has been created and is continuously adapted. If the official requirements are met in May and the situation allows, we look forward to welcoming you to Münsingen on the Ascension Day.

Here's a first look at the program ...

Photo Münsingen 2021: A first look at the program

Hopefully the time will come in three months: the will open from May 13th to 16th Pho­to Münsin­gen 2021 their doors. We are confident that we will be able to catch up with the 2020 program with a protection concept and slight adjustments. A first look at the planned photo exhibitions.

The Pho­to Münsin­gen 2020 had to be postponed due to the corona pandemic. Instead we have that Pho­to Münsin­gen vir­tu­ell created with a competition and many online entries. Now we hope that Pho­to Münsin­gen from 13 to 16 May 2021 in the beautiful Schlossgut area and the interesting encounters can take place physically. We have a comprehensive one for that Protection concept Developed. Of course, we will only hold Photo Münsingen if the official requirements are met and the situation allows.
