THE FESTIVAL
The Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF) is a cultural project whose objective is to promote street photography as an urban research tool, a form of cultural communication and a visual art. Inspired by Brussels’ urban landscape, the main ambition is to provide an international platform that looks at Brussels through the fresh eyes of its citizens and engaged photographers.
The program is organized around two photography contests where the best images submitted will be displayed on an open exhibition in Brussels. The exhibition will be followed by cultural activities that include lectures, workshops, round-tables, photo walks and photo feedbacks – bringing together knowledgeable photographers and photography enthusiasts.
The main exhibition will open at Halles Saint Géry on Friday, October 5 2018 from 7pm. Entrance is for free.

CONTESTS
The BSPF is having two different street photography contests: Singles and Series. The main exhibition of the BSPF will display finalists selected from both competitions. Winners will be announced during the exhibition opening, on Friday, October 5, 2018. Two winners for each category will be selected for a total of €4.900 in cash prizes.

OPEN CALL
The BSPF contests are open now for submissions. Participants can submit the photos to any of the two street photography contests until Wednesday, August 1, 2018.

BRUSSELS CONTESTS
Throughout the year, the BSPF will organize several contests related specifically about Brussels, in order to enhance and promote the act of taking pictures in the city. These competitions will be when possible associated with other events aligned with the BSPF. These satellite contests will work as leverage to show the best photos submitted during the BSPF itself. At the moment, the first of these contests is called: Made in Bruxsel by BSPF.

EXHIBITIONS IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS
The main exhibition of the BSPF will show the work of the selected finalists from the contests’ entries from Friday, October 5 in Halles Saint Géry, Brussels.
More exhibitions are being prepared in other locations such as Muntpunt, Maison des Cultures et de la Cohesion Sociale de Molenbeek and NH Hotel Bloom Brussels during the festival.
