The Bursary was established in 2005 in memory of distinguished documentary photographer and Honorary Fellow of The Society, Joan Wakelin. The Bursary is administered by The Society in partnership with The Guardian and offers £2000 for the production of a photographic essay on an overseas social documentary issue.
In addition to the funding you will also have the opportunity to have your portfolio printed by Metro Imaging.
The Bursary funds new projects only. We do not support on-going projects. The Bursary does not support projects requiring travel to or within war zones.
Entries are free and open to all, of any age or nationality.
Details on how to apply will be published in the new year - meanwhile if you would like to be informed as soon as this information is available please email firstname.lastname@example.org
