The Emerging Photographer Fund is designed to support continuation of a photographer’s personal project, or emerging career. This body of work may be of either journalistic mission or purely personal artistic imperatives. There is no age limit, and no limit as to how many projects you may enter. Projects submitted may be ongoing, or finished. We are looking to discover new work, and new talent.
The Emerging Photographer Fund awarded is $10,000.
Additionally, a separate Fujifilm Young Talent Award of $10,000 is awarded for a photographer under 25.
Both awards are not mutually exclusive.
Burn Magazine revolves around the Emerging Photographer Fund. Our most important curatorial contribution to the oftentimes chaotic landscape of photography today.
Each year, we choose a jury whose lifetimes have been spent in looking at photographs and making photographs, and on burnmagazine,org we try to give our readers a distilled version of the best work of all that flows before their eyes every day.
Most importantly our mission is to give recognition to the finest emerging authors out there and to provide some funding to at least a few to keep going and to continue making a mark. Our previous winners prove this is not in vain.
