Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award

Share

Eligibility:

The Rebecca Vassie Trust  announces the fourth annual Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award for emerging photographers, which includes a cash bursary of £2,000.

The award, which funds an early-career photographer in the UK to undertake a narrative photography project, also includes more than £1,000-worth of premier printing at Metro Imaging plus support towards industry and public exposure. In addition, up to twelve longlisted applicants join the trust’s Development Network, which offers smaller grants towards educational projects and professional development throughout the year.

Judges for the award include Caroline Hunter (picture editor, Guardian Weekend magazine), Phil Coomes (picture editor, BBC News Online) and Jennifer Thatcher (critic, curator and lecturer).

The award was created in memory of Rebecca Vassie, a British photographer and photojournalist who died suddenly, aged 30, while on assignment in Uganda in March 2015.

Applicants for the award, who must be either from or based in the UK, are asked to submit a proposal setting out a compelling vision for a narrative photography project with a social or political context.
