Emaho Foundation has launched a new grant to support Asian photographers.
The Emerging Asian Photography Grant offers $5,000, along with a solo gallery exhibition in Nottingham, UK, to one photographer working on a long-form, ongoing project that shows a deep dedication to the subject and illustrates a significant issue in our society. “The world is full of photographers but not everyone is using their photography to share a powerful message,” says Manik Katyal, founder and editor-in-chief at Emaho Magazine, who created the grant.
A panel of internationally renowned photography experts, including Christian Caujolle, founder of Agence VU, Kira Pollack, director of photography at TIME Magazine, and award-winning Iranian photojournalist Newsha Tavakolian, among others will select the inaugural grantee.
Applications will be accepted through July 31 and the winner will be announced in early September.
