Foam Talent Call
Being selected as a Foam Talent puts you in the spotlight of the international photography world. It recognises your artistic potential as an emerging artist and gives you the support to jumpstart your career.
The next Foam Talent Call will be organised in 2023.
search for Talents
The bi-annual Foam Talent Call is a search for exceptionally talented photographers between 18 and 40 years, from all across the world. Foam's Talent Programme is devoted to supporting you and your work.
Selected artists receive a number of career-building opportunities, including publication in Foam Magazine's bi-annual talent issue, participation in (online) programmes and events, as well as the potential to be added to the prestigious Art Collection Deutsche Börse.
what we're looking for
Our editors are curious to see new work from all around the world. We are looking for image-makers that have developed their voice and that have something to say.
Artists who might have already produced a self-published book, or maybe had a few exhibitions but haven’t had major publishing deals, major exhibitions or retrospectives yet. We strive for the Talent Programme to be a starting point in an artist’s career, rather than an arrival moment.
