General Info

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.

Looking at photography is something that fascinates me. The opportunity to see all these projects and ideas was a great opportunity to get a pulse of the photographic language in the 21st century. The judging for this prize was difficult and engaging. All the winners showed qualities that made them worthy of the prizes. For me, Miraj Patel did in the end show things that made me support it: humour, experimentation, questions of self and aesthetic experimentation. Alejandro Cartagena, Juror
