What is FUTURES Photography platform?

Copenhagen Photo Festival is part of FUTURES Photography Platform, which has existed since 2017 and is supported by the EU culture programme Creative Europe. We are more than 20 member institutions from all over Europe within the photographic field. Among the members are prominent institutions like PhotoIreland, Triennial of Photography Hamburg, Der Greif, Void and many others. CPF has been part of the platform since 2021.

How does the platform work?

Every year each member of the platform invites five new talents to become part of the platform. Right now more than 400 talents with various backgrounds and practices are part of the platform, but all with a relation to camera, photography or lens based art. The purpose of the platform is to strengthen lens based artists’ possibilities to get a career boost through a number of activities, e.g. promotion, individual portfolio reviews, network meetings and more.
