BBA Photography Prize 2020

ENTER CONTEST

International submission call for fine art photographers as part of the European Month of Photography 2020 (EMOP).

The BBA Photography Prize 2020 is an annual initiative by BBA Gallery in Berlin to invite the best talent and fine art photography work from around the world. Launched in 2017, BBA Gallery exists to find and represent artists with unique talent and ideas, a strong vision and a compelling style. Age or education are not the most important criteria for us, instead, we value authenticity, perseverance, professionalism and outstanding artworks.
We began as an artist-run project space in 2015, and our ethos has been clear since then – to seek out talented & passionate artists and give them all the nurture they need.

Jury:
Submitted entries will be judged by high ranking professionals like the award-winning photographer Nikita Teryoshin, co-founder of EyeEm and Berlin Photo Week, Gen Sadakane and former Director of Eyes On – Photo Week Vienna and EMOP Jury member, Thomas Licek.

The jury will look for the most innovative concept, aesthetical language and unique approach within the medium. There are no restrictions in terms of theme, photography medium or educational background. Installations and conceptual works are welcome.

During the EMOP exhibition in October, a People's Choice Award would also be run where the public can vote for their favourite artist. The BBA Photography Prize winner will be announced at the opening event for EMOP, and the People’s Choice Award winner will be revealed during the finissage.
