Submissions open for fourth Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award, photography bursary worth £3,000

The Rebecca Vassie Trust today announces the fourth annual Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award for emerging photographers, which includes a cash bursary of £2,000. The award, which funds an early-career photographer in the UK to undertake a narrative photography project, also includes more than £1,000-worth of premier printing at Metro Imaging plus support towards industry and public exposure. In addition, up to twelve longlisted applicants join the trust’s Development Network, which offers smaller grants towards educational projects and professional development throughout the year. Judges for the award include Caroline Hunter (picture editor, Guardian Weekend magazine), Phil Coomes (picture editor, BBC News Online) and Jennifer Thatcher (critic, curator and lecturer). The award was created in memory of Rebecca Vassie, a British photographer and photojournalist who died suddenly, aged 30, while on assignment in Uganda in March 2015. Applicants for the award, who must be either from or based in the UK, are asked to submit a proposal setting out a compelling vision for a narrative photography project with a social or political context. The deadline for submissions is Friday, 27 March 2020.

Rebecca Vassie Trust is a charity registered in the UK, established 2016 in memory of the British photographer Rebecca Vassie. The Trust supports the art of long-form narrative photography, and promotes education in photography both for emerging professionals and the broader public.

About Rebecca Vassie: Rebecca Vassie was born in 1985 and studied photography at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) in Rochester. After graduating she worked as a commercial photographer and photographer’s assistant. In 2012 she moved to Uganda to establish a career as an international photojournalist. She worked as a stringer for Associated Press (AP), with her pictures appearing in major newspapers worldwide including The Guardian and The Washington Post. She also photographed for a number of charities and NGOs as well as pursuing her own projects, such as documenting Uganda’s transgender community and its Olympic boxing hopefuls. She died suddenly, aged 30, in March 2015, from complications related to an asthma attack while documenting Kyangwali Refugee Settlement in Hoima District in western Uganda.
