We are happy to announce that the FETA AWARD 2014 is now open for entries.

FETA is a leading European award for photographic students and their works will be judged against photographers from across Europe. The aim is to encourage and recognize the high standard of photographic image making taking place in Europe by graduating students. The winner of the last edition was ANNA RASMUSSEN, student at the Orange Factory, Studio of Advertising Photography, School of Art and Advertising, Prague, Czech Republic. The Chairman of the FETA judging is Dave Matthews, UK.

Call for Entries 1 May 2014 – Deadline August, 31st, 2014

Open To: Final year students studying photography on a 3 years degree or equivalent approved or accredited courses in Colleges, Institutes or Universities in all European countries.

How to Enter: Submissions will be on line. Applicants will submit 12 images and will need the support and approval of their University course leader. To be included in the shortlist, the student should be under 30 years of age and their portfolio should ‘hang together’ as a unified collection. It is also recommended that the images tell a story.

Prizes: The winner of “The Emerging Talent Award” will receive a certificate. Merit winners will receive a merit certificate. All those who receive awards will be invited to collect their prize at an event in Europe and FEP will contribute to their travel expenses. Winners will receive coverage in all FEP media. The FEP member association representing the country where the winners of the FETA awards are living, may offer free membership as an additional prize. The FETA winner may be also nominated for further international awards, such as the IPC Sophie Smoliar Scholarship Award.


Application fee: An entry fee of 20,00 € per portfolio is required. Each institute shall collect the money from their students and will pay the total amount to FEP. As an alternative, they may allow each applicant to send the application fee directly to the FEP.


FEP Member Associations tasks: FEP National Associations will promote the award and they may recommend institutions to send students work for a FETA award.

Colleges tasks: The college/university course leaders will select the highest achieving final year students on their course to enter for the award. The maximum number of portfolios which can be sent by each Institute is four (4). The course leader will also validate and verify each student’s submission of images.

Judging: Judging will take place in Rome, Italy, during the FEP QEP/MQEP qualifications session, at the end of November 2014.
