BredaPhoto is a biennial festival that showcases the work of national and international top photographers and visual artists at unique indoor and outdoor locations in Breda, Netherlands.


BredaPhoto exhibits visual stories that inspire, move, confront, raise new questions, and demonstrate that photography is the artistic medium at the heart of society. For seven weeks, the city is a life-size canvas that gives the exhibited works an extra dimension. In 2024 the festival returns from 13 September to 3 November 2024 and like every other edition artists that work with photography have the chance to propose their work that fits with the theme through our Open Call. The theme for the next edition is Journeys. At a time when physical travel can come at a high cost to our planet, BredaPhoto Festival 2024 focuses on the journey as a symbol. Be it a personal search for one's own identity and a meaningful life or a collective journey in search of freedom and space to breathe. Journeys strives to bring different stories together within their multitude, seeking to create connecting paths in-between, and to inspire the viewer towards finding new and alternative routes of their own.

Practical Info

Worldwide Professional Photographers and lens based Artists are welcome to apply 10 to 15 files (images or videos) per project. Selected photographers and artists will be invited to showcase their project during the BredaPhoto Festival 2024.
