More from burn:
Burn Magazine revolves around the Emerging Photographer Fund (EPF). It is our most important curatorial contribution to the oftentimes chaotic landscape of photography today. By choosing a jury whose lifetimes have been spent in looking at photographs and making photographs, we try to give our Burn readers a distilled version of the best work of all that flows before their eyes everyday.
Most importantly our mission is to give recognition to the finest emerging authors out there and to provide some funding to at least a few to keep going and to continue making a mark. $10,000 is given to the recipient of EPF to move forward in their work. This is made possible with a generous donation by Michael Loyd Young through the Magnum Foundation. Our previous winners prove this is not in vain.
In addition, Fujifilm is partnering with us to offer an award, open to all photographers who are 25 or younger at the time of the deadline. All you need to do is enter into the EPF… and if you’re 25 or younger, you’ll be automatically eligible for the Fujifilm Young Talent Award. Fujifilm also offers a cash prize of $10,000 to the winner.
Of course we are immensely proud of this partnership… and hope in this way we can give back to the young emerging ones amongst us… who just might need it more than we can ever imagine.
