International Talent Program
In 2010 we started the Academy program. Here we focus on photographers who are still studying. We work with nine different art academies across Europe. The students set to work on the years’ theme. During this period, they receive support from their own teachers as well as the BredaPhoto team of curators and a selection of teachers from the participating art academies.
In January/February, we visit the academies with the team to give the students personal feedback on their work. In April we will invite 45 students to pitch their work with us in Bielefeld. Nine students will be invited to exhibit their work during BredaPhoto 2022. This is of course a great opportunity! The students get to meet other people in the field and gain a large audience for their work: not only at the exhibition but also through all other BredaPhoto channels.
