An annual award is being made to a professional female photographer towards completing a documentary photo essay.

The Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award will support a professional female photographer to complete a documentary photo essay which addresses an important social, environmental, economic or cultural issue; whether local or global.

The winner will receive an award of £2,500 which will go towards the costs associated with completing the project. All shortlisted applicants are featured on the FotoDocument website, and will be publicised by both FotoDocument and Nikon UK.

Women from any stage of their careers are welcome to apply, whether emerging, mid-career or established.

Entrants must already have started the photo essay for which they are seeking funding and be able to show work in progress. In addition, applicants must have already completed at least one other documentary photo essay to demonstrate a track record prior to applying for funding.

Entrants must be over 18 and may be any nationality, and based anywhere in the world.

The deadline for applications is 19 May 2023 (17:00 BST).
