Firecracker Photographic Grant


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 generous 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.

  • Projects must be started and have been shot in the last 5 years.
  • Your work must be your own.
  • We recommend only professional or semi-professional photographers apply.
  • Applications close 18:00 BST on 2nd September 2018. Late submissions will not be accepted.
  • Applications submitted without payment will not be considered.

Deadline for proposals: 2 September 2018

The Firecracker Photographic Grant has been awarded since 2012. Winners to date have come from the UK, Russia, Spain and Belgium.
