Building on the success of the 2012 awards, the bursaries are open to UK residents to support a photographic project that will promote environmental awareness. Each £3000 bursary is to assist with travel expenses, photographic equipment and other project-related costs.

There are two awards available for applicants aged 16-25 and 26+ years. This year,  The Royal Photographic Society are looking for a creative interpretation of the subject as well as documentary and editorial photography.

Entries are required by 31 May 2013. An application form is available from The RPS website.

2012 Winners
The under-25 photographer is Ciril Jazbec, a Slovenian national living in London, who has completed a MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication. Jazbec’s project is focusing on climate change through rising sea levels in small communities around the world.

The over-25 photographer is Mandy Barker, a British national based in Leeds. Barker graduated with a MA Photography from De Montfort University, Leicester, in 2011 and has had a number of well-received exhibitions and publications including her project Soup. She will use the bursary to look at marine plastic debris resulting from the Japanese Tsunami in the north Pacific ocean.

The resulting work from these projects will be completed by August 2013 and then exhibited at the RPS Annual Awards ceremony on 19 September 2013.
