Shutter Hub Supporting the Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award 2017

We are delighted to be supporting the Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award once again this year.

The award comprises a bursary of £1,250 for an early-career photographer in the UK to complete a photography project, plus £1,150-worth of printing at Metro Imaging and support towards industry and public exposure. The winner and and runners-up will also receive a Shutter Hub membership.

The award was created in memory of Rebecca Vassie, a British photographer and photojournalist who died suddenly, aged 30, while on assignment in Uganda in March 2015.

Applicants for the award, who must be either from or based in the UK, are asked to submit a proposal setting out a compelling vision for a photography project around ‘a human story we seldom see’. The deadline for submissions is Friday, 2 October 2017 at 1700 BST.
