OPEN16 Young Photographers

Phoenix Brighton: OPEN16 Hub

1–30 October

Brighton Photo Fringe is dedicated to the professional development of photographers and we want to create pathways for career development into the industry. This year, for the first time, Brighton Photo Fringe has launched an OPEN especially for photographers who are between 14 and 18 years old.

From an open call 20 photographers have been selected by a panel. The exhibited photographs have been professionally printed by our sponsor Metro Imaging and each photographer will be able to take theirs home to keep at the end of the festival. One winner will be selected from this shortlist to receive a £100 print voucher from our sponsors Metro Imaging – London’s most trusted and reliable pro lab – as well as a portfolio review with a professional photographer.
