The International Photo Festival Leiden showcases 20 new photography talents from the European Union with less than five years’ professional experience. These talents are selected by an expert jury, which also awards one winner a cash prize to help further their career. The winner will be announced on October 14, 2017.

 

To propel their work into the professional world, their work will travel to several international photography festivals over the course of one year. The main IPFL festival will take place in the Netherlands in the spring of 2018.

ORGANIZATION BIO

The International Photo Festival Leiden started in 2013 as a festival dedicated to new photography talent. At each festival, an expert jury selects 20 talents from the European Union with less than five years’ professional experience. Their work travels the world, from New York to Sydney. The main festival is held in the city of Leiden, the hometown of Rembrandt and Mondriaan’s movement ‘De Stijl’. The festival lasts for three weeks, featuring outdoor exhibits, workshops and presentations. There, the top 20 photographers are showcased, as well as work from IPFL’s international festival partners.

 

The mix of countries, experience and work is inspirational for professionals, as well as students and photography lovers. The IPFL is run by volunteers and is supported by several sponsors, funds and private donors.
