Since 1987 the Lower Saxony Foundation has been committed to art, culture, science and education through funding and supporting approximately 200 non-profit projects every year. As a part of this, they established the Stiftung Niedersachen’s Spectrum International Prize to award contemporary photo artists and have been doing so since 1994. 

Previous winners include Fiona Tan (2019), Rineke Dijkstra (2017), Hannah Collins (2015), Boris Mikhailov (2013), Bahman Jalali (2011), Helen Levitt (2008), Martha Rosler (2005), Sophie Calle ( 2002), John Baldessari (1999), Thomas Struth (1997) and Robert Adams (1994).

In 2021 the Spectrum International Prize for Photography will be awarded to Sir Zanele Muholi.
