The PHmuseum Grant is an annual international initiative organized to support photographers, promote their projects and further their careers. Within the four previous editions it has awarded the work of photographers like Max Pinckers, Diana Markosian, Tomas van Houtryve, Rasmus Degnbol and Clémentine Schneiderman among many others, and it has grown into a leading photography award. The 2017 edition is now open for submissions.
The contest is open to all photographers, including those outside of the PHmuseum network. Applicants are invited to present visual projects centred around a specific theme, narrative or concept. The prizes will comprise £12.000 in cash, a solo exhibition at Cortona On The Move, an article on Witness – the World Press Photo Foundation online publication – a projection at Just Another Photo Festival and promotions via PHmuseum channels. The New Generation Prize, awarded to a photographer under 25 years of age, will also include a mentorship program with acclaimed educator Maggie Steber.
Applications will be reviewed by Sarah Leen (Director of Photography National Geographic Magazine and Partners), Emma Bowkett (Director of Photography at the Financial Times FT Weekend Magazine), Alejandro Chaskielberg (Photographer) and Ihiro Hayami (Director of Tokyo Institute of Photography), who together will assign the Main Prize. Arianna Rinaldo, the Artistic Director of Cortona OTM, will select a project to be exhibited at the 2017 edition of the festival. Kate Bubacz (Senior Photo Editor for BuzzFeed News), Fiona Rogers (Global Business Development Manager at Magnum Photos International), Poulomi Basu (Photographer and Director of Just Another Photo Festival) and Alejandro Kirchuk (Visual Journalist and Senior
Photo Editor at PHmuseum) will award the New Generation Prize.
The submission deadline is February 13th, 2017.
