The Firecracker Photographic Grant is an annual award providing funding for a female photographer to aid with the completion of a documentary photographic project.
The inaugural Firecracker Photographic Grant was awarded in September 2012 to British photographer Jo Metson Scott for her project 'The Grey Line', a sensitive documentation of soldiers speaking out against the Iraq war.
Through a combination of self-initiated fundraising and with the generous support of Genesis Imaging the 2013 Grant fund will be a minimum financial contribution of £1,000 cash plus £1,000 of professional printing, mounting and framing services from Genesis Imaging.
Applications are open to women photographers born or residing in Europe and submissions are judged by an independent panel of industry specialists from a cross section of disciplines and sectors.
Applications for the 2013 Grant will open 1st June 2013.
