No matter if it’s bad mood, coffee grounds or spam mail - everyone filters permanently and maybe even without noticing it. If you think about your everyday life, where are you a filter? Catch this moment and share it with us!

We all filter - partly consciously, partly unconsciously, but always with good reason. In many situations, our everyday lives are about separating the useful from the harmful. Whether it's preparing coffee, at work or in leisure time, when dealing with other people or when capturing special moments.

We would like to get to know your personal filter moment. Send us your contributions! We are excited about your photos, texts and videos. There are no limits to your creativity.
