Rebecca Vassie Trust / Deadline: 03/27/20
The award: £2,000 to undertake a narrative photography project with a social or political context; approx. £1,000-worth of printing at Metro Imaging; support from the Trust towards public and industry exposure of the work; membership of Shutter Hub.
UK citizens or currently resident in the UK.
The award is for photographers at early-to-mid career stage. By this we mean a working professional photographer, probably trained, with strong and relevant experience – but who does not yet earn a full living wage from their preferred style of photographic work.
There is no age limitation, and no requirement for art school or university education.
We warmly encourage photographers from culturally diverse backgrounds, those whose gender identity is non-binary, and those with disabilities.
Please note that we do not fund current undergraduates, or full-time students on any course.
We do not fund work that forms part of a postgraduate degree. Most applicants who make it through to our longlist have been working professionally as photographers for at least 2 years.
