Announcing RPS Women in Photography Bursary

RPS Women in Photography Bursary
Applications Open:
1–30 September 2022

Between 70 – 80% of photography students around the world are women, yet they account for about only 15% of professional photographers. This sharp decline from education to working photographer can be attributed to an ongoing lack of gender parity within our industry, among other factors.

The Women in Photography Group, with the generous support of our Honorary Chair Karen Knorr HonFRPS, are offering a bursary to support a female or female-identifying postgraduate student (student on photography course) in the development of a photography project.

To be eligible, the applicant must have completed their degree no later than 31 August, 2017. The funds may be used for any project related expenses. At completion of their project. The recipient will present a body of work to the RPS Women in Photography Group (i.e.; exhibition, photo essay, documentary, etc.) and work with the Society to share their project. In addition to the £3,000 bursary, the recipient will have the opportunity for 1:1 information sharing sessions with leading women photographers. The Women in Photography Group is a special interest group of the Royal Photographic Society with the objective of facilitating the celebration, education and collaboration of female identifying photographers. Group membership is exclusively available to RPS members only.

The Bursary will be awarded by a selection panel including photographer Joanna Vestey; creative producer and curator Sebah Chaudhry; Women in Photography Chair Teri Walker; and Hazel Watts, Director at Spectrum Photographic. For further information, please contact:
