Last year, 16 portfolios were selected from almost a thousand submissions. This year, Foam Magazine is hoping for even more! The chosen portfolios will be published in the Fall issue, Foam Magazine #36/ Talent, and exhibited in Amsterdam around the time of Unseen Photo Fair, the international photography fair focused on emerging photography talent.
The annual Foam Talent Call searches for exceptional talented photographers from all over the world. We aim to have an annual overview of the work of young promising artists. We are curious for new developments, trends and themes that are of importance to contemporary artists,’ according to Marloes Krijnen and Pjotr de Jong, respectively editor-in-chief and creative director of Foam Magazine.
Every year, Foam Magazine dedicates its Fall issue to publishing the work of young talents. It is a springboard into the international photography industry for these artists, giving them worldwide recognition and acclaim. Last year the winning portfolios were chosen from almost a thousand submissions from all over the globe. The winning portfolios, chosen by the Foam Magazine editorial team, will be published in the Fall issue, Foam Magazine #36 / Talent. The Foam Talent Call 2013 is open to all photographers aged between 18 and 35 across the globe. The entrance fee is €35,- and the competition is fierce, but those chosen will be showcased in the Fall Talent Issue of the magazine and exhibited/promoted in different ways through the international photography network of Foam Magazine. The editorial board will choose the portfolios according to the creative vision and concept of the series presented, amongst other criteria.
