What is more difficult than for a young photographer to gain their first dose of public recognition ? To help the rise of young talents, FIDAL is launching an award for photographers who have never exposed their work in a museum or leading festivals. This prize is open for all fields of photography (reporting, fashion, portrait, still-life, sport, nature, art, etc.). The jury will put forth a reward for an original and strong eye as well as an asserted willingness to put forward a new perspective.
FIDAL Photo will help with the financing of a project up to 5 000 euros, in order to benefit the prizewinner to carry out a project of their choice (book, exhibition, website, happening…). Fisheye will accompany the winner in the achievement of their project. The announcement of the winner will be announced between the 18th and 22nd of December.
How to enter ?
To enter, you need to be under 40 and never have exhibited you work in a leading museum or festival. To participate, all you need to do is submit a text proposing your project, as well as a series of 10 to 15 photos on the page “Submit application”‘ before the 4th of December.
