The Keep an Eye Foundation is meant to support young and promising talents in the fields of art and design. Various grants, prizes, shows and festivals offer creative makers a chance to develop their talents, create new opportunities and – above all – realise their dreams. Additionally, Keep an Eye tries to stimulate exchange between the various disciplines and study programmes, thereby shedding a new light on the works of students.
The Keep an Eye Photography Stipendium is meant to support graduates practising the medium of photography right after their graduation and offers them a financial boost. The stipend thereby contributes to their profiling as maker / starting artist and enables the recently graduated to find their place (under guidance) in the practical field of their matching professional sector.
The winners receive a sum of €10,000.-, of €2,500.- is reserved for coaching. Students from the courses of Photography and Fine Art are eligible for the stipend, with the requirement that photography is an integral part of their graduation work.
The jury of 2020 consisted of Roy Cremers (founder of crowd funding platform Voordekunst), Mariama Attah (editor and curator photography) en Sêma Bekirovic (artist).
