We are delighted to once again support The Firecracker Photographic Grant; an annual award providing funding to support a female photographer to aid in the completion of a documentary photographic project.
Firecracker was established in 2001 by Fiona Rogers to promote European women working in photography. In 2012, Firecracker launched its inaugural photographic grant, which has since awarded assistance to winners including Sanne de Wilde, Lua Ribeira, Jo Metson Scott and Diana Markosian.
The Firecracker Photographic Grant 2017
Applications are now open to female photographers born or residing in Europe and submissions are judged by an independent panel of industry experts from diverse disciplines across the creative sectors; including picture editors, commissioners, art buyers and gallerists. Through a combination of self-initiated fundraising and our support, the 2017 grant is a £2000 fund supported by Genesis Imaging which helps a female documentary photographer complete a body of work.
