Call for Entries: Emerging Photographer Fund 2013

From Burn:

We are now officially announcing the Emerging Photographer Fund grant for 2013.

We are awarding $15,000 to three winners and spreading the love.

One top winner will receive $10,000 and two runner-ups will each take home $2,500.

These grants are designed to support continuation of a photographer’s personal project. This body of work may be of either a journalistic mission or purely personal artistic imperative. It was initiated by David Alan Harvey in 2008 and is awarded by the Magnum Foundation.

We offer this to support emerging photographers in our craft. All types of photographers. This is not a photojournalism grant, nor an art photographers grant, but could be garnered by either or both. We just want to support committed authored photography of any ilk. Please click here and see who has secured this grant in the past and who our jurors have been. 2013 jury will be announced in the next few days!

The deadline for entry will be May 5, 2013 (6pm EST). No extensions for any reason.

Over the next months, your essay will be reviewed by an independent panel of judges in the photographic industry. Past judges include Carol Nagar, Martin Parr, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, Maggie Steber, Fred Ritchin, Bruce Gilden, David Griffin, John Gossage, Susan Meiselas, and James Nachtwey.

A maximum of 25 photos may be submitted. The submission fee is $25. All payments are final. Once your submission is complete, you will be unable to alter it.

The winner will be announced in June 2013 on Burn and at this years LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph. The top 10 finalists will be featured on Burn.

Past Burn finalists have been published in print via Burn 01 and Burn 02. Burn 03 is on the horizon and being cooked up as a limited edition magazine/book. Stay tuned.
