* YPU, the organisation
The organisation Young Photographers United is a foundation that aims to support a selection of young photographers by creating new opportunities for broad and international exposure. We also put together projects where photographers get a chance to set foot in the professional photography world.
There are several criteria to join the YPU organisation.
First, you need to have a refreshing sense of photography. It's all about creativity and re-inventing the world into an innovative place.
You also need to have good technical skills. A good picture is defined by its set-up, lighting, concept,..
To be part of our collective, we need someone with team spirit.
And last but not least, we need your full commitment. You have to have a drive and passion for photography.
The foundation does not receive external funding and it relies on the collaboration between the core team and the photographers. It's all about working together, joining forces to create our own golden path into the art world. And with a bit of work and fun, success is at the other end.
* YPU, the social network
The organisation is limited to support 150 photographers. Every year, more than 2000 applicants approach YPU. This is why YPU has decided to launch a social network to help more photographers. This social network is open to everybody who fills in the application form.
