Foam Talent 2021
Territory: Worldwide
Theme: Open
Eligibility: Between 18 and 35 years old
Entry Fees: 25 euros
Today the 15th edition of the Foam Talent Call opens for submissions and will run until 1st June 2021. Foam is proud to announce the 15th annual Talent Call by Foam Magazine: a search for exceptionally talented photographers between 18 and 40 years, from all across the world. The public call is open until 1 June 2021 for artists to submit their work. Being selected as a Foam Talent puts artists in the spotlight of the international photography industry. The programme offers a number of career-building opportunities, including publication in Foam Magazine's annual Talent issue, participation in (online) programmes and events, as well as the potential to be added to the prestigious Art Collection Deutsche Börse. Foam Talent aims at showcasing and highlighting the future of the contemporary photography world, kick-starting careers of emerging artists worldwide.

Pandemic year, widened criteria
The past pandemic year forced all of us to reflect, evaluate and adapt our activities to the new situation. For Foam this resulted in some changes to the criteria of the Talent Call, and the corresponding programme which aims to accommodate rising artists. Since 2007 the annual Talent Call is the core step in Foam's ongoing commitment to scout, present and support new generations of talented image-makers worldwide. The Talent Call, and the Foam Magazine Talent issue, are Foam's own yearly look on the ever-growing photographic community. The Talent Call is age based, because with every year Foam strives to look at how specific generational segments of image-makers are engaging with the medium, with the ongoing conversations in the photographic community and with their peers. This year the call is specifically addressed to the age group from 18 to 40 years old, widening the age segment in an attempt to compensate the gender gap affecting our communities. On top of this, Foam is also lowering the entry fee to € 25 with the intention of widening the possibility of its access.

Conversations with the Archive
For the call for Conversations with the Archive, we are looking for work using historical, familial, or found photographs (or ephemera) to create a new visual language or expression. This reconsideration of other people's photographs, whether it be from a family album or a dusty thrift store bin, allows the creator to appropriate, construct, edit, and sequence in order to create something entirely new--sometimes in conversation with the photographer's own imagery, or sometimes as an artistic exp

Night Life
THE BRIEF: The sweet delight of an endless night. This month we are looking for images inspired by the night – in a literal or abstract way. From hazy dreams to harsh realities.

Urban street scenes, portraits, documentary, landscapes, editorial, conceptual, still life… New images or from your archives. Show us life at
Deadline: January 31, 2022
Animal kingdom

The Still Life
Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. P
