Royal Photographic Society Supports and Encourages Young Photographers

The Royal Photographic Society is offering a range of different bursary schemes for the benefit of young image makers.
These fundings will be available for members and non-members in 4 types:

1. To support professional or potential professional photographers in commercial photography. This Jeff Vickers FRPS Genix Imaging Bursary (http://www.genix.co.uk) is in support of young photographers (up to the age of 30) who are in commercial professional practice or who can demonstrate that they will become involved (excluding photojournalism which is covered by The Joan Wakelin Award).
2. To support postgraduate students undertaking photographic research or studying Masters courses in photography. These Postgraduate Bursaries are open to bids from Course Leaders of Masters courses or Research Directors in Photography at UK Colleges and Universities for nominating students, no more than one per institution.
3. To enable young photographers to attend selected Society Regional and Group events that they would not normally be able to afford. These Young Student Bursaries are only open to bids from Society Regional and Group Organisers.

By Laura

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
