Closing this month...

We have two important competitions closing on the 31st of May 2017:

Environmental Awareness Project Funding - £6,000 (£3,000 per age group)

Environmental 3

The RPS, in partnership with The Photographic Angle, is offering funding for two year-long projects that will promote environmental awareness. An environmental project could be based on something in your backyard - you don't need to travel far afield to produce one. The two awards are available for applicants in two categories: aged between 16-30 and 31 years and over.  It is free to enter and anyone can apply.
