#DürerChallenge

Instagram Challenge for a Spectacular Presentation of a Renaissance Genius.

To go with the largest Albrecht Dürer exhibition in nearly a century, we’re inviting you to participate in an Instagram Challenge that’s very special indeed! No matter whether one looks at the Hare, the Large Piece of Turf, or his Self-Portrait, it’s clear to see that Albrecht Dürer was a true master of Renaissance art.

“When Dürer used a drawing implement—especially a brush!—to explore the limits of the possible, when he used the finest brushes to work out every most delicate hair, the smallest wrinkles and grooves, every most minute detail of a feather, the results never failed to make clear this artist’s great mastery,” says Christof Metzger, our exhibition curator and an unparalleled expert in the field.

The present challenge is to lend your own photos a bit of this one-of-a-kind artist’s aura. So seek out the right motif and put it through all the filters you think will help to achieve that special Dürer look. Then post your picture on Instagram with the hashtag #DürerChallenge.

The winners will have the chance to win a Dürer Breakfast at DO & CO Albertina followed by a tour—or to win one of two Dürer Hares by Ottmar Hörl. What’s more, the creators of the 25 best submissions will be invited to an exclusive evening event on 14 November 2019 at which they’ll receive their photos in printed form. This evening will also include an after-hours tour.

The best photos will be shown on permanent rotation on a screen outside the exhibition and also be printed in the Viennese daily KURIER.
The contest’s winning entries will be chosen by a jury comprised of experts from the Albertina, Instagrammers Austria, Instagrammers Vienna, and the KURIER.
This challenge runs from 9 Sept. to 31 Oct. 2019.

Conditions of participation:
Submissions to this contest will be accepted until 31 Oct. 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Participants submit entries by posting their own photos (all rights must be held by the participants) with the hashtag #DürerChallenge on Instagram. The winners will have the chance to win a Dürer Breakfast at DO & CO Albertina followed by a tour or to win one of two Dürer Hares by Ottmar Hörl. Winners will be contacted in a timely manner via private messages on Instagram. Decisions are not subject to legal contestation, and cash payouts are not possible.
