Book launch
The book launch will happen in June 2020 during Photo Basel (June 16-21).

How it works
All emerging photographers born or based anywhere in Europe are welcome to apply. After the deadline a jury of specialists consisting of GUP editors, gallerists and photographers will go through all applications and select the 100 best. If you are amongst the selected 100 photographers to be featured as a FRESH talent, we will grant you 4 pages in the book. However, publishing a book isn’t free. We therefore have to ask you to contribute to the costs. The rate for every selected participant is 300 euro (excl. VAT).

Please note: applying is free! We will only ask you to pay once you are selected.

Why apply?
We know how difficult it can be for a beginning photographer to make it. The gap between the art academy and the real world can be wide. The competition is strong. FRESH EYES put its network to help you in being noticed.
