Pocket-lint Logo By pocket-lint.com of Pocket-lint | Slide 1 of 15: For the 2019 Zeiss Photography Award, the brief was to show 'The Unexpected' - looking past the every day and addressing something unforeseen or surprising instead.Entrants were asked to submit a series of five to ten images showing the unexpected, whether in landscape photos, images of the physical environment, human expression or something more conceptual.  This brief meant the subject could be anything from a global issue to a very personal concern, giving photographers plenty of artistic freedom. In the end, 58,000 images were submitted by photographers from around the world. 150 countries submitted entries to be judged by Simon Frederick (artist, photographer, director and broadcaster, UK), Shoair Mavlian (Director, Photoworks, UK) and Dagmar Seeland (Picture Editor, STERN Magazine, Germany). Seven photographers were shortlisted by the judges and one winner was chosen, we've got the gallery of their images for you to enjoy.
