Long Term Projects – European Photo Exhibition Award (epea)

Four European Foundations launch a new Award for Photography

The international photo project European Photo Exhibition Award – abbreviated epea – was established in 2011 in collaboration with three other European foundations. The motivation for this photo project was to foreground talented younger photographers who have carved out a name for themselves, but are still waiting for an international breakthrough. Twelve photographers will be selected for each peer group.
