TALENT TRACK 2021

Everyone has to start somewhere, so why not with us? Talent has the future. Therefore, we try to provide a breeding-ground for talent in the categories of photography and spatial design. We upgrade, you upgrade. The Talent Track has already started. Keep an eye out for next year!

The Talent Track consists of the Photography- and Design teams. It includes two parts: working in a team and creating your own projects. You will receive feedback on your work, learn new skills and receive training and/or workshops.

By participating, you not only gain important work experience and contacts, but you also get the chance to show your work as part of the festival! That means more than 5,000 people will see your work.

Process

The talent tracks start on September 1 and continue until the beginning of December. Depending on how fast you work and how much work you take on, this track takes about one to two days of work per week.

You can work at our office (HQ) with a photo studio and a workshop or on location. You have contact with your supervisors about your personal development, you follow workshops, you participate in discussions with fellow participants and you work on individual and group assignments. So definitely enough opportunities to expand your portfolio and gain professional work experience!
