Wanted: Young European Music Photographers!


Popview is the European platform for musicphotographers younger than 35. Every year, photos of the seven best photographers can be seen in an exhibition. The selection is done by an international team of photographers and curators.

The exhibition will open during the Eurosonic Noorderslag musicfestival (Groningen, Holland) in the Noorderlicht Photogallery (Groningen), and can be seen for a month.

One of the seven selected photographers is rewarded the Lex van Rossen Award; an annual prize for young musicphotographers. The winner receives e2500 and a publication in a photomagazine/newspaper. In a later stadium, the exhibition will travel abroad.

At this moment, we are busy preparing Popview 2010. Therefor, we are looking for young talent. Are you interested and born after 14th of January 1975, then you can send 15 photos, a resume and a motivation to popview2010@gmail.com (until the 1st of September). Participation is for free.

You’ll find more information on www.popview.eu


Just curious... Why are you focusing on young music photographers?

Who said anything about young music photographers? Or did I miss something? oh, guess I should read the whole thread instead of just Stacey's reply... hahaha...

yeah, seems very lame to be excluding some very talented photographers just because they are older than 35 (me).

Yes, Dan, it must have be senility that caused you to miss the first part of the thread...

On Popview's MySpace, they have Cindy Frey in their top friends. She is an amazing photographer, but I wonder if they will still think so when she turns 35 in 2 years.

I have a friend that loves photography and started taking some great photos at concerts and theater plays. He will be so happy when I'll tell him about this gallery. Thank you so very much for posting about it.
