PHMuseum has opened submissions for its second annual Women Photographers Grant and has £10,000 in cash prizes to award to four talented female or non-binary photographers: £5,000 for first place, £2,000 for second place, £1,000 for third place and £2,000 for the winner of the New Generation category. In addition to the prize money, winners will have their work published by YET Magazine, displayed at Photo Vogue Festival and promoted by PHMusuem.
Until September 27 submissions will be discounted to £18, the fee will rise to £27 after that. The deadline to apply is October 17. Interested photographers should submit 8-20 images that are centered around a single concept or theme. Last year’s grant winners included Raphaela Rosella, Heba Khamis, and Sanne De Wilde working on diverse stories out of Australia, Cameroon and Micronesia. Fabiola Cedillo was awarded the New Generation prize.
This year’s competition will be judged by Karen McQuaid, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Aïda Muluneh, and Pamela Chen.
“I’ll be watching out for work that’s challenging, sincere and playful,” Sanguinetti writes regarding what she is looking for. “As long as I’m transported into someone else’s story in an intelligent and visually poetic way.”
There are no limitations to the style of photography that can be submitted. More details about the application process can be found on the PHMuseum website.
