Burn magazine calls for entries in Emerging Photographer Fund

Photographers have been invited to submit their work for a chance to win a $10,000 grant for the completion of a personal project. From the Burn website we get this
We are now officially announcing the Emerging Photographer Fund grant for 2013.

We are awarding $15,000 to three winners and spreading the love.

One top winner will receive $10,000 and two runner-ups will each take home $2,500.

These grants are designed to support continuation of a photographer’s personal project. This body of work may be of either a journalistic mission or purely personal artistic imperative. It was initiated by David Alan Harvey in 2008 and is awarded by the Magnum Foundation.

We offer this to support emerging photographers in our craft. All types of photographers. This is not a photojournalism grant, nor an art photographers grant, but could be garnered by either or both. We just want to support committed authored photography of any ilk. Please click here and see who has secured this grant in the past and who our jurors have been. 2013 jury will be announced in the next few days!

The deadline for entry will be May 5, 2013 (6pm EST). No extensions for any reason.
