BredaPhoto International Talent Program selection announced
BredaPhoto has selected nine young talents, who are studying at a European art academy, to exhibit their work at the BredaPhoto Festival 2022. These talents participated in the International Talent Program that BredaPhoto developed in collaboration with the European academies with the aim of scouting and supporting emerging photography talent. After the kick-off in December with more than 200 students, an intensive process with various feedback rounds and mutual contacts followed for months. Forty-five talents advanced to the final round. In Bielefeld, Germany, they met at the University of Applied Sciences to pitch their final projects. From this round, the nine exhibitors were selected. They will be exhibiting their work in September alongside the top international photographers.

The BredaPhoto International Talent Program (ITP) is a European collaborative project between BredaPhoto and several European art academies. The ITP has existed since 2010. The aim is to scout and support emerging photography talent in Europe. This happens at different stages in the career of these talents. BredaPhoto offers three programmes: The Academy (for students), The Residency (for alumni who graduated 1-2 years ago), The Support Program (for alumni who graduated 3-5 years ago).
The International Talent Programme came about in part thanks to the generous support of amongst others, the European Union’s Creative Europe Programme, Brabant C, the Province of North Brabant and the Municipality of Breda.
