The Save Our Seas Foundation is seeking emerging conservation, wildlife and environmental photographers with a passion for marine subjects to apply for an unprecedented annual photography grant. SOSF has set aside US$40,000 to invest directly in marine conservation photographers of the future.
Starting this year, a panel of judges will select two winners, each of whom will receive a US$2,000 cash prize and a paid three-week photographic assignment to document a SOSF-supported marine research or conservation project. Both winners will also receive an all-expenses-paid trip to an international photographic or conservation conference to present their photo story. Each winner’s story will also be published as a photo essay in the Save Our Seas Foundation’s magazine.
Applicants should be serious emerging photographers who may have become successful in their local region, but have not been widely published in major magazines and have not earned numerous high-profile international awards.
