The BSPF Preview

The Brussels Street Photography Festival Preview @ The Photo Academy, Brussels

On the weekend of 20-22 September, we will be organizing the BSPF Preview, an event in which we will be displaying all the photos submitted to this year’s edition. 600 prints will be made, which will have included at least one picture per participant, while the rest of the 2000 submitted pictures will be shown on a projector.

The idea behind this event is to give all those who have participated in our contests a chance to have their work displayed to a public audience. The visitors will be dynamically creating the exhibition themselves by browsing through and selecting the printed images to attach to various spaces around the exhibition room with a variety of different themes. This act of creation will go on until the last day of the exhibition, on which visitors will dismount the exhibition picture by picture by taking whatever three photos they wish with them as a memory of this event.

The BSPF Photo Marathon

On the car-free Sunday of September 22, 2019, our annual Photo Marathon will take place. We are asking everyone to take photos in the City of Brussels on this day and share them on Instagram with the hashtag #BSPFPhotoMarathon, or alternatively email them to us to We are looking for photos that show the essence of Brussels, highlighting the reasons why this city we love so much is deserving of it.

The photos should be in the style of Street Photography, and participants can process them as they wish as long as these edits do not take away from the reality of the captured moment. The participation is completely free and we will be printing and handing out the winning photo as a postcard to the visitors of the 2019 edition of the BSPF.
