Submissions open for third annual Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award, photography bursary worth more than £3,000

The Rebecca Vassie Trust today announces the third annual Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award for emerging photographers ‒ with the cash bursary increasing this year from £1,250 to £2,000.

In addition to the cash, which funds an early-career photographer in the UK to undertake a narrative photography project, the winner receives more than £1,000-worth of printing at Metro Imaging plus support towards industry and
public exposure.

Judges for the award include Matthew Tucker (BBC News), Melanie Hough, curator at Getty Images, and photography critic Jennifer Thatcher (Art Monthly


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. 

The deadline for submissions is Friday, 19 October 2018.
