Foam objectives (as described in our statutes)

To contribute to the development of photography by presenting, collecting, and stimulating education and research in both a national and international context.

Artist fees

Foam is proud to collaborate with many inspiring artists working in photography. In addition to giving image-makers a platform, we also actively nurture photography talent through various talent programmes and photography awards. We believe that being transparent about our artist fees is an intrinsic part of this.

The rates below are based on the kunstenaarshonorarium and are re-evaluated yearly. We (partially) cover other costs in consultation with the artist, such as travel, production, transport and installation.

Some examples of the fees we offer include:

  • Foam Paul Huf Award winner – €20.000
  • Florentine Riem Vis Grant - €10.000
  • Jury fee - €300
  • Jury chair - €500
  • Solo exhibition (new work) – €1000 - €4000
  • Solo exhibition (existing work or adjustments) – €500 - €2000
  • Group exhibition (new work) – €800 - €900
