Commenting on the theme, ZEISS said: "The theme 'Seeing Beyond - Discoveries' tests photographers to use their camera as a tool to explore and question the world. Throughout time the human race has thrived on making discoveries, whether it be a personal revelation, a scientific and technological breakthrough, or an idea that has led to social change. The ZEISS Photography Award provides the opportunity for artists to put a spotlight on these new, unseen discoveries in life. All submissions must be accompanied by a supporting statement outlining the story behind the body of work."

A shortlist of up to 15 photographers and one winner for the 2020 ZEISS Photography Award will be revealed on 31 March 2020.

The 2020 winner, who will be revealed at the 2020 Sony World Photography Awards grand ceremony on 16 April 2020 in London, will receive €12,000 worth of ZEISS lenses, €3,000 to cover travel costs for a photography project and the opportunity to work with ZEISS and the World Photography Organisation.
