BredaPhoto Festival | 5 Sep. – 21 Oct. 2018

BredaPhoto Festival

BredaPhoto Festival is the largest photo festival in the Benelux and is held every two years in Breda. During this seven-week photo exhibition, national and international top photographers – together with new talent – exhibit their work at attractive indoor and outdoor locations in Breda. The 9th edition of the BredaPhoto Festival will be held from September 9 to October 25, 2020.

Photo exhibitions and activities

BredaPhoto Festival exhibits the state of the art of contemporary photography, based on an internationally relevant social theme: current, stimulating and presented in an original way. In the selection of the work and in its presentation, we strive towards the highest achievable level of quality.

BredaPhoto Festival shows stories that are inspiring, moving, confrontational, that raise new questions and demonstrate that photography is the artistic medium that stands at the heart of society.
In addition to the exhibitions during the festival, numerous activities will take place. These include guided tours, presentations, book presentations, talk shows, meet & greets and workshops for sharing and deepening knowledge and providing a fresh dose of inspiration.



For each edition, BredaPhoto develops – in collaboration with elementary and middle/high schools – educative projects for children and teenagers

BredaPhoto Festival is a ‘must’ for everyone who loves photography. The festival is not only a source of inspiration for professionals (photographers, artists, curators, students). But for everyone who is interested in photography and who want to be inspired and enjoy themselves by a day out in Breda. BredaPhoto is also a great opportunity to experience Breda in a different way.
