PHM 2017 Women Photographers Grant - Excellent Opportunity

For me there is nothing more powerful than a story that captures real people’s stories and real emotion. I’m hoping that photographers applying to this grant will show us what is the essence of being a woman today in an anti-female social landscape; show us what women feel is worth living and dying for.
— Donna Ferrato

PHmuseum presents a new annual grant aimed at supporting women photographers. The PHM 2017 Women Photographers Grant aims to empower the work and careers of female and female-identifying professionals of all ages and from all countries working in diverse areas of photography. It further means to facilitate the growth of the new generations and promote stories narrated from a female perspective, while responding to the necessity to fight against gender discrimination within the industry. 

The international jury by Donna Ferrato (Photographer),  Alessia Glaviano ( Senior photo editor for Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue and Web Editor of Vogue.it), Rebecca McClelland (Director of Photography, Art Buyer and Creative Director & Curator of the Ian Parry Scholarship) and Daniella Zalcman (Photographer & Founder of womenphotograph.com) will review the submissions and select the prize winners. 

Submission Deadline is  12 October 2017. For more information click here.

Rennaissance Photography Prize - Call for entries!

The Renaissance Photography Prize is an international award that showcases outstanding photography from emerging and established photographers while raising funds to support young women with breast cancer.

This year the prize celebrates its 10th edition and invites entrants from anywhere in the world to enter by 26 June 2017. The exhibition of the selected finalists will take place in October in Central London. 

The prize is looking to discover talent and celebrate the best in photography, giving image makers access to new opportunities and international audience for their work. Entering gives photographers the chance to have their work seen by a panel of some of the industry’s most influential photography critics, as well as being exhibited and published.

Photographers can enter single images and/or series of work. The competition is open to everyone and welcomes entries from all countries. All profit from entry fees is donated to The Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care, UK, a charity that supports younger women affected by the disease. Currently, one third of the Lavender Trust’s annual funding comes from the Renaissance Photography Prize.

The Renaissance Photography Prize exhibition presents the judges’ selection of some of the best international photography today. The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony, late autumn 2017. The annual Portfolio Review will take place during the exhibition weeks, where anyone has the chance to get their work reviewed by gallery directors, curators, agents and editors.

Renaissance Photography Prize was founded in 2007 by Fiona Gifford following her diagnosis with breast cancer at the age of 34. Since then it has raised over £250,000 for the Lavender Trust at Breast Cancer Care.

The prize is now managed and curated by Monica Takvam with the help of a team of dedicated volunteers.
