FEP Young Photographer Award


The FEP Young Photographer Awards is a European award for young photographers

In 2013, The Federation of European Photographers, in collaboration with a number of Universities and Colleges, introduced a new photographic award for young photographers. The aim was to encourage and recognise the high standard of photographic image making taking place in Europe by final year University students and newly qualified young photographers.

At Tbilisi, Georgia in 2018 it was decided to merge the student category of the FEP photography competition with the FETA (FEP Emerging Talent Award), henceforth it would be known as the FEP Young Photographer Award, and be open to any photographer under 30 year of age. It aims to encourage and recognise the high standard of photographic image making among young photographers.

The award is open to any young photographers,  applicants must be under 30 years of age in the year of submission.
