Marine Conservation Grant Accepting Entries

Save our Seas is accepting applications for the 2016 Marine Conservation Grant for emerging photographers
By UWPG News

The Save our Seas Foundation is accepting applications for their annual Marine Conservation Photography Grant. This grant awards the winner(s) with a true SOSF marine research assignment, plus the ability to earn an income and gain experience under the guidance of National Geographic photographer Thomas Peschak.


‘We created the SOSF Marine Conservation Photography Grant to give emerging photographers a creative and financial boost during a critical and often challenging time in their careers. I truly hope that each grant will give two photographers a life-changing opportunity and lead them down a successful and rewarding path in the realm of conservation photography.’     - Thomas Peschak 


To quote the Save our Seas website:

"Applicants should be serious emerging photographers who may have become successful in their local region but have not been widely published in major magazines and have not earned numerous high-profile international awards. We prefer applicants to be under the age of 30, but older applicants who can still be regarded as ‘emerging’ may also be considered. Photographers with underwater photography skills in their repertoire are especially encouraged to apply."
