Since 2007, the annual Foam Talent Call has been the core step in Foam’s ongoing commitment to scout, present and support new generations of talented image-makers worldwide. The Foam Talent Call and the full programme are Foam’s own biennial look at the ever-growing photographic community. The public call specifically addresses emerging artists: someone in an early stage of their career, who doesn’t yet have an established reputation but is developing work with a distinct style. We look at a generational segment set from 18 to 40 years old.
Foam Talent aims to be the starting point in an artist’s career. The programme is centered around nurturing and supporting you and your work. If you think your work is ready for international recognition, being selected as a Foam Talent is a jumpstart to your career.
Standard entry fee is 30 EUR
All about photography. Foam is an international and multifaceted photography museum, based in Amsterdam. The organisation is rooted in the need to make photography accessible to everyone. As a tool that has the potential to connect and encourage dialogue, we serve as a platform for conversation, contemplation and connection with visual culture and the world around us.
Foam stands for Talent. We scout, present and support talented artists in order to stimulate and showcase exceptional quality. We aim to bring an international spotlight to new developments and experimentation in photography.
Only photographers between 18 and 40 years old (by Dec 31, 2023) can enter the Foam Talent Call.
