BredaPhoto Festival Open Call 2024

BredaPhoto exhibits visual stories that inspire, move, confront, raise new questions, and demonstrate that photography is the artistic medium at the heart of society. The BredaPhoto Festival is a biennial where you get the chance to view the work of national and international top photographers and visual artists at unique indoor and outdoor locations in Breda. For seven weeks, the city is a life-size canvas that gives the works an extra dimension.

In 2024 the BredaPhoto 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 2024 edition of the BredaPhoto Festival is: Journeys.


As different as we may be, we are all searching for our own place in life. That search, that inner journey of becoming, might be aspirational, driven by a sense of longing and a desire for freedom. Perhaps we are seeking meaning, higher purpose, or simply trying to survive. Journeys can be psychological or spiritual, yet also intensely physical. They might be filled with promise, exhilarating yet also challenging, driven by curiosity or forced by an emergency, as is the case for the world’s many exiles and refugees.

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.
