Grant Program 2016 - SOS: Marine Conservation Photography Grant

Posted by Shofi Fida Tuesday, December 29, 2015 0 comments
Closing Date: January 15, 2016.

The Save Our Seas Foundation believes that photography is a powerful tool for marine conservation. We invite emerging conservation and wildlife photographers who have a passion for marine subjects to apply for our 2016 grant. This is a unique opportunity for photographers to go on assignment, earn an income and gain experience under the guidance of National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak.

Applicants should be serious emerging photographers who may have become successful in their local region but have not been widely published in major magazines and have not earned numerous high-profile international awards. We prefer applicants to be under the age of 30, but older applicants who can still be regarded as ‘emerging’ may also be considered. Photographers with underwater photography skills in their repertoire are especially encouraged to apply.


Two winners will be selected for each grant. Each winner will receive a US$2,000 cash prize and will be given a paid three-week photographic assignment to document an SOSF-supported marine research or conservation project. The SOSF has funded more than 160 projects in more than 40 countries and the winning photographers will be assigned to tell one of these stories. Thomas P. Peschak, National Geographic Magazine photographer and director of conservation for the Save Our Seas Foundation, Kathy Moran, senior editor (natural history) of National Geographic Magazine and David Griffin, former director of photography of National Geographic Magazine, will mentor photographers throughout the process. This assignment period will be a learning and refining experience as well as an opportunity to earn income through photography. Both winners will be given the chance to showcase their work at an international conference or an exhibition. Each winner’s story will also be published as a photo essay in the Save Our Seas Foundation’s magazine.
