ANBI status

The ANBI status of NonFiction Photo was awarded in 2020. A ANBI non-profit is a public benefit institution. An institution can only be an ANBI if it is almost entirely committed to the public interest.

NonFiction Photo follows the principles of the CCG in its policy and implementation. NonFiction Photo exists thanks to a team of around 80 - 90 volunteers and a handful of employees. It operates on the basis of the manifesto.
