Emerging Photographer Fund 2017 – call for submissions


Burn Magazine revolves around the EPF. 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. Our previous recipients prove this is not in vain.

In addition since 2015 FujiFilm is partnering with us to offer several prizes for our category “Young EPF Award”. It’s open to all photographers who are 25 or younger (born on Jan 1st, 1992 or later).

All you need to do is enter into the EPF… and if you’re 25 or younger, you’ll be automatically eligible for the “Young EPF Award” as well. Fuji offers a cash prize of $5,000 to the winner of the “Young EPF Award”.

Of course we are immensely proud of this partnership… and hope in this way we can give back even more to the young emerging ones amongst us… who just might need it more than we can ever imagine.

This all gets added alongside our existing “main” EPF grant which is already $10,000… and both the EPF grant and the Young EPF Award are not mutually exclusive, so you could potentially win both… imagine that.

The EPF is accepting submissions until September 15th… submit your story… if ever there was a time to emerge, that time is now.

Nicosia within the walls at night. Note: the mood of the city whose public discourse is based around family and religion is strangely different at night. #nicosia #neon #cyprus #nightwalk

Every time I come back to Cyprus, I see new things. Maybe they were there for a long time but I just notice them as I grow. Evening, riding with the car, not far from Nicosia. Photo by @lea.savvides #cyprus #landscape #evening #nicosia #red

Change of pace today, I am going to share a few from Athens a couple of months ago. Despite the apparent beauty of the city, nightwalks in Athens reveal a lot about the dire situation of the marginalised. #athens #neon #dystopia #nightwalk #greece
