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 Max Pinckers, Poulomi Basu, Jacob Aue Sobol, Diana Markosian, and Tomas van Houtryve, among many others. Now in its 10th 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.
The theme is open. All approaches are welcome from traditional documentary photography to experimental ways of telling a story or sharing a concept. If you have any doubts, check our FAQs or get in touch with us.
