Spring Exhibition application information and form

Application deadline: Spring Exhibition 2020 is: October 1st 2019! 

Below you will find further information on The Spring Exhibition and how to apply. We recommend you read the guidelines before you begin your application.

The Spring Exhibition was established in 1976 by approval of FFF’s annual general selection. As an opposition to The Autumn Exhibition, The Spring Exhibition was to be organised by FFF to ensure the inclusion and exposure of lens-based art practices in the contemporary art field. It is an annual group exhibition based on open submissions selected by a jury of fellow part professionals. Since 2010, The Relief Fund for Visual Artists (Bildende Kunstneres Hjelpefond) have annually announced and awarded the Art Photography Prize, Norway’s largest art photography prize, to the most significant artist displayed at the exhibition. 

The jury selects participating artists via an open application process. All artists actively working in Norway can apply. Submitted works should have relevance to the camera based field of art, but all techniques and materials are welcome. There are no requirements for FFF-membership in order to apply the Spring Exhibition.
