About Ocean Storytelling Photography Grant 2023
Stories spark the imagination and nurture ideas. They are, without doubt, our most powerful form of communicating and connecting, both with each other and the world around us.
At the Save Our Seas Foundation, we have a strong history of supporting marine conservation and education projects, but believe that to truly translate knowledge into effective, meaningful change we must communicate through engaging stories. An inspiring or compelling story can spur positive action in ways that no presentation of facts can.
We are delighted to announce the opening of our emerging Ocean Storytelling Photography Grant. These grants are led by our own Director of Storytelling and National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak, in collaboration with Kathy Moran, Deputy Director of Photography at National Geographic, and Jennifer Samuel, Photo Editor at National Geographic.
We are particularly seeking to support early career and emerging storytellers and aim to encourage new voices with new perspectives and photographic approaches. As such, applications must have no more than 5 years of professional experience in any photography-related discipline.
Additionally, over two-thirds of our previous photo grant applicants were male, and almost 80% were from North America and Europe.
In an effort to actively remedy these imbalances pervasive throughout the industry, we especially encourage women and applicants from South and Central America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and from underrepresented communities to apply for this opportunity. Applications will be accepted both directly via open call and through nomination.
