The PHmuseum Photography Grant is an annual initiative that recognises the importance of photography and visual storytelling.
Over the years it has grown into a leading photography prize, with previous editions having awarded work by photographers like Jacob Aue Sobol, Diana Markosian, Max Pinckers, Poulomi Basu, and Tomas van Houtryve, among many others. Now in its 9th edition, the initiative is designed to support the production and promotion of visual projects through cash prizes, educational activities and exposure across international festivals, and online media.
PhEST’s team will select a work from all the submissions to be granted a solo show during the 6th edition of the festival to be held in Monopoli, Italy in August 2021.
Jon Uriarte, artistic director of Getxophoto and digital curator at The Photographers’ Gallery, will select a project from all the submissions to be awarded an exhibition during the new edition of the festival which will be held in Getxo, Basque Country, Spain in September 2021. In addition to the show production, the winner will receive an artist fee of €400 and accommodation for 2 nights during the Opening Week.
PHmuseum's Director Giuseppe Oliverio and Curator Rocco Venezia will select a project among all of the submissions to be exhibited at PHmuseum LAB, Bologna Italy, in September 2021. The prize includes travel, accomodation and production costs.
Landskrona Foto's Director Jenny Nordquist, will select a photographer from all the submissions to be awarded a place for the Landskrona Foto Residency.
