TPF Photography Grant

Social Documentary Photography Grant

Founded in 2021, the TPF Photography Grant is delivered in partnership with The Photography Foundation and LIMI London charity providing £2,500 towards the production of a social documentary photo essay.

The TPF Photography Grant is for a maximum 12 month period and can be used towards any combination of travel, equipment or living expenses while completing the project.

The TPF Photography Grant winners have their final project printed and exhibited (in partnership with Rapid Eye and the Photo Book Cafe), have their work showcased on the grant partners websites & social media channels and we will be working with strategic partners to publish the completed photographic essay. Additionally, the grant winners are allocated a TPF TALKS evening to give a presentation about their completed project.

We welcome applications tackling a range of social issues and your application should detail clearly the social issue that is being documented and how your project intersects with it. The TPF Photography Grant is a UK-based grant and as such must have a UK focus. The grant is open to any photographer (professional or amateur) from any age range and background.

Applications for the 2023 TPF Photography Grant will open later in the year.

Ellie Ramsden

Ellie Ramsden is a photographic artist based in London. Much of Ellie's work aims to question stereotypes, stimulate discussion and give new perspectives. In her personal projects, she is interested in exploring aspects of British culture through various communities, especially those which are rarely documented, or who choose to live outside of the conventional constructs of society.
