The Firecracker Photographic Grant is an annual award providing funding for a female photographer to aid with the completion of a documentary photographic project. Through a combination of self-initiated fundraising and with the support of Genesis Imaging, the Grant fund is a minimum financial contribution of £2,000 plus credit of professional printing, mounting and framing services from Genesis Imaging.
Applications are open to female photographers internationally, and those who are female-identifying. Submissions are judged by an independent panel of industry specialists from a cross-section of disciplines and sectors, including picture editors, commissioners, art buyers and gallerists. Submissions are subject to a £10 application fee, with all funding contributing to the Grant total.
The 2018 Jury are:
Brandei Estes, Head of Photography, Sotheby's
Olivia Arthur, Photographer and Co-Founder of Fishbar
Lucy Pike, Director of Photography, WeTransfer
Tim Clark, Curator & Editor in Chief, 1000 Words
