THE CENTRE FOR BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHY IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE CREATION OF A PROGRAMME OF GRANTS AND MENTORSHIP TO SUPPORT PHOTOGRAPHERS AND ARTISTS WORKING WITH PHOTOGRAPHY IN BRITAIN.
APPLICATIONS OPEN ON 15TH DECEMBER 2023
Are you looking for help to complete a project, finish a book dummy, or realise an exhibition?
The Centre's new Realisation Grants are here to help artists working in photography to help realise a project.
The Centre for British Photography is pleased to announce the creation of a programme of grants and mentorship to support artists working with photography in Britain.
During 2024 the Centre for British Photography will be awarding a total of £10,000 with a maximum award of £2,500 per recipient. These are not support grants but are awards to enable photographers and artists working with photography to bring an ongoing project to completion within a year. They are open to individuals of all ages, irrespective of academic background.
Recipients of the Centre's Realisation Grants will have a total of three sessions of expert mentorship from the team and trustees of the Centre for British Photography.
Applications are FREE.
HOW TO APPLY
Submission is not based on nationality; however, the applicant must be based in Britain.
Applications may be submitted from 15th December 2023 to 15th January 2024. Application details will be available on the Centre for British Photography’s website and on Picter Contests. Applicants should submit their application via Picter Contests.
Applicants are requested to provide:
- A description of their project (300-word maximum)
- A project budget
- A description of plans for research, development and production of the project (250-word maximum)
- An outline of how this project relates to your previous practice / earlier bodies of work (250-word maximum)

- Up to ten low-res (no more than 72 dpi) digital images from an existing project
- Application is free.
EQUALITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSIVITY
The mission of the Centre for British Photography is to champion photography made in Britain in all its diversity. Our commitment is to support and platform photographs from all backgrounds and to be as inclusive as possible. We encourage applications from people with backgrounds that are currently under-represented or under-supported within the arts sector.
An internal selection panel will be responsible for shortlisting a maximum of fifteen applications which will then be assessed by the Centre's trustees.
The 2024 selected photographers will be announced on 1 March 2024. They will receive their grants in two stages: 50% upon acceptance of the grant, and the balance on 15 September, considered the half-way mark of the grant completion period. It is suggested that works produced with support of the grant should be finished by 1 March 2025.
We are grateful to Horage and to all those individuals who have supported our grants programme.
