One Thing I Know

One Thing I Know: A Collective Feature

In the next issue of WE ARE Magazine, we'd like to explore the many valuable lessons we can learn about life, art, and the wider world from our practice as photographers.

In a collective feature called “One Thing I Know”, we're inviting WIP members to share an insight learned through photography, irrespective of genre or experience. It needn’t be long – you only have 1,000 characters! – but it should be meaningful to you.

WIP Bursary

About the RPS Women in Photography Bursary

This bursary was made possible through the generous support of Karen Knorr, HonFRPS. It was to be awarded to a female or female-identifying graduate to assist in the development of a photo project. Projects could include photo essays, exhibitions, documentaries, etc. We received 149 applications from graduate students taking courses in photography or undertaking research in photography.

In addition to the £3,000 award, bursary recipient Mina Boromand received one-to-one mentoring from leading photography expert Zelda Cheatle.
