Support the BSPF

Participate in our contests and support the Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF).

All of our activities (exhibitions, projections, talks, discussion panels, photo walks, photo feedbacks, parties, among others) are free and open to all public.

By doing this, we strengthen the Street Photography community by promoting it as a form of visual art, exposing it to a larger audience and engaging new enthusiasts.

To take part in this initiative is the way to make it possible: the more participants the festival has, the better it will be. In this way, we reward your time and trust by organizing the festival and giving you a large exposure. Thank you for spreading the word!

The BSPF is an initiative created by Cakri, a non profit association based in Brussels.
