Info and registration

The access to the master course is regulated by the evaluation and selection of the candidates conducted by Fondazione Fotografia Modena.

The application request is strongly recommended to all those who come from an artistic academic career and want to deepen their knowledge in the field of contemporary imagery as well as all those who are working with photography and video at a professional level and who want to undertake a personal creative path in the artistic field. The selection criteria are based both on the artistic skills and motivation of the candidate and on the educational qualifications and professional experiences.

It is important for candidates to show a strong artistic and professional vocation in the field of photography, video and in general of contemporary imagery. A good knowledge of Italian and English languages is required, in order to be able to follow and understand the classes and the communications with international teachers.

In order to support the artistic researches of particularly talented candidates, exemptions and reductions are provided directly by Fondazione Fotografia Modena and its partners.

The detailed information regarding the application process, the selection and the enrolment is described in the specific call that is published every year by Fondazione Fotografia Modena.


The applications to the 2017/2019 master are now closed.

The new call for applications for the 2018/2020 course will be published in January 2018.
