Shutter Hub are pleased to be able to offer Camera Amnesty Project Grants – awards of up to £500 to help towards photography projects that focus on matters surrounding humanitarian issues and social injustices.

Photographers can apply for grants for any of the following:

– To fund part of a larger project for a single photographer
– To go towards community and group photography projects
– To deliver workshops, skill sharing and training of others
– To create work for exhibition or publication
– Other creative ideas you may have!

Camera Amnesty Project Grants are for all genres of photography, not just documentary. We are looking for projects that will have a positive social impact, either on the participants or on the wider audience, and produce tangible results.

Applications will be reviewed twice a year, in April and November, and are open to all Shutter Hub members.

 


 

This is an opportunity for Shutter Hub members as part of our community offering, which includes support and promotion of all members. If you’re not a member yet you can find out more about what we do and join here. We understand that not everyone’s circumstances allow for the annual membership fee and don’t want this to be a barrier to joining, so we have a number of memberships available at no cost in our membership bursary scheme. You can find out more about this here.
