Environmental Bursary

The Royal Photographic Society in partnership with The Photographic Angle offers two, one-year bursaries to support a photographic project that will promote environmental awareness.

This Bursary is now closed - it will re-open in 2017.

Anyone can apply who lives or studies in the United Kingdom with an interest in documentary/editorial/creative photography and the environmental concerns that we face today.

The bursaries provide £3000 to assist with travel expenses, photographic equipment and other project-related costs detailed in the application.  There are two awards available for applicants aged 16-30 and 31+ years.   The winners of both Awards will also be given the opportunity to have a portfolio of their work printed by Metro Imaging.

We look for creative interpretation of the subject as well as documentary and editorial photography.
