The reason for the competition? The Association of Photographic Designers say that their primary goal is to stimulate the discussion about the photographic image and to promote professional photography in all areas. The pool of creativity that has grown since the first awards presented in 1995, has constantly stimulated debate about photography in Switzerland. This is why the vfg Young Talent Promotion Prize for Photography is seen as a springboard for exceptionally talented young photographers and at the same time a representative mirror of young Swiss photography.
The competition takes place each year, to promote and support the work of young photographers by giving them the platform to present and publish their work.
