The seventh curated international portfolio viewing featuring young emerging European photographers will be held on the weekend of 25 to 27 January 2013. As in the previous year, we have invited 42 photographers to present their work for two hours to the public and a selected team of experts. The participants have been chosen from among some 150 nominated photographers. Plat(t)form 2013 is aimed at professionals such as curators, gallery owners, publishers, editors and photographers. At the same time the event offers interested visitors an opportunity of discovering the work of young photographers and artists and of meeting them in person.

The Plat(t)form database makes it possible to view the works that are presented online. Each photographer is represented by five images; each participant chosen by the experts as exceptional is represented by ten images. One can search alphabetically or view the years (Plat(t)form 09, 10, 11, ... ) individually. Forty-two photographers will be added to this database every year, so in a short time it will become one of the most important research tools for European photography.
