The Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism in Hanover testifies the power which photojournalism has in our image-oriented world, adding fundamentally to our perception of mankind in all its facets. It contributes to the education and sensitization, touches people emotionally and lets them share.

The photography study program of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts organizes the Lumix Festival in cooperation with the German photojournalist association FreeLens. From 13 till 17 June 2012 numerous reportages and picture essays will be presented in the futuristic pavilions of the Expo area. The centre of the festival will be the Design Center, headquarter of the Hanoverian photojournalism students. Like all exhibition pavilions it is situated on the area of the former Expo 2000.
