BredaPhoto 2018


The 8th biennial edition of BredaPhoto International Photo Festival invites professional photographers from all over the world to share their vision on the 2018 theme TO INFINITY AND BEYOND. We invite you to share your (audio)visual interpretation of the possibilities and impact of the ongoing progress in technology and science. Will it bring nothing but progress? Or are we at risk of opening a Pandora’s box full of unwelcome surprises?

Submissions for the BredaPhoto festival 2018 can be entered from July 1st 2017 until February 1st 2018. The selection of works and proposals will be done by our three festival curators Reinout van den Bergh, Jan Schaerlackens and Geert van Eyck. The submissions that, judged by them, best complement the program by giving an original elaboration of this edition’s theme, will be displayed during the BredaPhoto International Photo Festival from September 5th till October 21st 2018. The organization will notify the selected artists in March 2018 by e-mail.


The selected photographers get the chance to show their work in the biggest photo festival in The Netherlands.


Submissions are open to all accredited photographers and visual artists of the world, from students to established names. You can apply with multiple projects, but please submit them separately.
