Brighton Photo Fringe is dedicated to the professional development of photographers and we want to create pathways for career development into the industry. In 2016 Brighton Photo Fringe launched an OPEN especially for photographers who are between 14 and 18 years old.

20 photographers were selected by a panel from an open call. The exhibited photographs were professionally printed by BPF sponsor Metro Imaging – London’s most trusted and reliable pro lab. One winner was selected from the shortlist to receive a £100 print voucher from Metro Imaging, as well as a portfolio review with a professional photographer.

Submission details of the 2018 Young Photographers award will be announced Summer 2018.

The OPEN16 Young Photographers Judging panel:

Jamie Brett (Youth Culture Archive), Juliette Buss (Learning & Participation Curator, Photoworks), Rachel Gillies (Lecturer, University of Brighton), Ewen Spencer (photographer) & Clare Strand (photographer).
