Being selected as a Foam Talent is a career-building opportunity. Foam's Talent Programme is devoted to supporting you and your work and consists of sharing a portfolio and commissioned text in Foam Magazine, exhibited across multiple Foam touchpoints, participation in the supporting Talent Programme throughout the year, and the opportunity for your work to be added to the prestigious Art Collection Deutsche Börse.
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.
WHAT YOU GET AS A FOAM TALENT
ABOUT FOAM TALENT CALL
Since 2007 the annual Foam Talent Call is 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 Foam Magazine Talent issue are Foam’s own yearly look on the ever-growing photographic community.
The public call is specifically addressed towards an age group, set from 18 to 40 years old. The Talent Call is age-based because every year we strive to look at how a specific generational segment of image-makers is engaging with the medium, with the conversations ongoing in the photographic community and with their peers. This year the age segment has been widened from 35 to 40 in an attempt to address the disparity affecting our communities. The entry fee has also been lowered down to €25 in an effort to widen the possibility of its access.
