The deadline for the Foam Talent Call 2012 is fast approaching.
After 16 April, the judging panel will close the doors and start
deliberating on a final selection of the best Talents of this
But some of you still might be umming and aahing about whether
to enter at all. Well, if you still need some kind of incentive,
how about this? The work of the fifteen artists who make the cut
will feature not only in the Fall issue of Foam Magazine, but also
in an exclusive Talent exhibition in Amsterdam's Westerpark. If we get our way, the work will
go on billboards around the park.
Very nice, you might say (and you'd be right). But what if we
said that both the exhibition and the launch of the magazine all
happen at the same time and in the same place as Amsterdam's first
international photography fair, Unseen?
That's pricked up your ears, with any luck.
In September this year, 50 international galleries, and no doubt
some serious collectors, will be falling over each other to find
out what's hot in photography. That's quite a good time to make an
appearance on the scene. So, unless you're in the habit of looking
a gift horse in the mouth, make sure you get your entry into the Talent Call 2012 by 16
April. It's a great opportunity to get maximum exposure for your
work. So don't be undiscovered, be Unseen.
