Selection:
Participation takes place only upon invitation. Each year, the Fotomuseum Winterthur asks thirty to forty curators, professors, publishers, editors, gallerists from all over Europe to nominate up to five photographers from their regions. From these nominations, the Fotomuseum Winterthur selects the forty-two participants. The participants receive a travel fee.

Forum:
Plat(t)form offers the chance for emerging artists to introduce their work to an audience and to experts. Plat(t)form is an extremely lively discussion forum, a network, an information platform for professional and interested audiences. Plat(t)form also offers the possibility to collect exciting photography early on and for galleries, magazines, and publishers to discover interesting photographers. Plat(t)form is the showcase for the future of photography in Europe. 

Database:
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.
