The Swiss Photo Award – vfg.selection is one of the most prestigious photography prizes in Switzerland.
The winners of the categories (awarded CHF5,000 each on March 16) were: Andrea Helbling (architecture), Anita Vozza (editorial), Lorenz Cugini (fashion), Jessica Wolfelsperger (fine art), Jaromir Kreiliger (free), Christian Bobst (reportage) and Diego Alborghett (advertising).
For the past 19 years it has showcased the whole of Swiss photography, from architecture to editorial, as well as fashion, fine art, free, reportage and advertising. Each year an international jury selects the best works in each category, showing the most outstanding art and craftsmanship.
The award is open to photographers resident in Switzerland and/or having Swiss citizenship, as well as to photographic work that was published in Switzerland in 2016.
