Brussels Fashion Festival

Young Photographer of the Year Award

Be Fashion. Be Brussels

Welcome to the Brussels Fashion Festival Creative Awards in association with Alcatel. Designed to ignite imagination, creativity and original thinking within art and design.

The BFF Fashion Photographer of the Year Award looks for story telling through the lens creating a moment others may have missed.

For 2022, photographers are asked to present an image which signals your appreciation for where you live. Whether it be your hometown or adopted city, use your surroundings as your backdrop, with a focus on celebrating a person within your town to showcase their personality and unique style.

Look behind the doors of your city and choose a backdrop that resonates with you. Show us a style moment which means something to you.

Create an image which sparks an interest from the viewer but explores both a unique and personal viewpoint.

Include references to the cultures, diversity and the individuality of your city with the ultimate message visualising your story.

  • One final piece with up to 3 supporting images showing the creative journey.
  • Few words, on your technical spec and how your selected image was achieved.
  • 300 words, sharing your idea behind the image and its value to you.
