The area of photography is eligible for culture as well as economic funding. Commercial photography is eligible for economic funding, and artistic, non-commercial photography is eligible for cultural promotion same as other forms of visual arts. There are no specific funding programmes just for photographers, but all artistically working photographers can apply for the Berlin Senate’s programmes for the visual arts. Other sources of funding could be the following:
Use the database of Kulturförderpunkt looking through the Visual Arts section, there may be programmes that photographers are also eligible for.
For any commissioned works and projects that are eligible for economic promotion, the criteria for economic funding and financing apply.
For individual consultation in the field of non-commercial art work we recommend Kulturförderpunkt ("Culture Funding Point"). If you are working indepently on commissioned projects Kreativwirtschaftsberatung Berlin (Creative Industries Consulting) might offer the right kind of consultation for you.
We have provided an overview of all available consultation opportunities in the field of culture funding and cultural industry financing in our individual consultation section.
