As part of the National Media Museum’s ongoing commitment to photography, the 2009 annual bursary awards have been announced and the deadline for applications is 25th September 2009.

In order to qualify, applicants must provide in addition to the application form, a written synopsis of their proposal in addition to their CV and an example of their work.

You don’t have to be British to apply, however you must be resident in the UK at the time of the award. The project must be completed within one year of the award being made, and photographers are expected to work independently although they will receive support and guidance from museum staff if this is requried.

Further details and an application may be downloaded from the award website
