Now in it's second year, the Firecracker Photographic Grant will provide at least Â£1,000 in funding for a female photographer to aid with the completion of a documentary photographic project. Applications will be welcomed from women photographers born or residing in Europe and submissions judged by a panel of industry specialists from a cross section of disciplines & sectors.
The Grant will be awarded to a photographer based on the strength of visual portfolios and artist statements submitted. Applications to the Grant are now open, subject to a Â£10.00 application fee. 100% of the revenue received from submissions will be combined with previously raised funds and invested into the Grant funding. The Grant recipient will be announced in September 2013.
