The Flash Forward Emerging Photographers Project Grant by The Magenta Foundation is for all photographers who already meet the criteria of the Flash Forward program and need seed money to continue working on their projects. Interested and qualified emerging photographers need to apply for inclusion in Flash Forward 2016 by January 15, 2016

Magenta has always been proud of everything Flash Forward has accomplished for emerging artists. And now the trailblazing program continues to invest in artists who have talent and need support and encouragement to continue their work. The most lasting achievement of the program is all the talent that has come through in what we call The Flash Forward Family. These artists have built formidable careers—thanks to the launching pad nature of the program, which helps bring attention to the work they do. Artists such as Andrew Rowat, Donald Weber, Dominic Nahr, Simon Roberts, Melissa Gibson, Spencer Murphy, Matt Eich, Jenn Ackerman, Lucas Foglia and many, many others, are the true testament to this world-class program and how it has helped encourage and empower emerging artists at the beginning of their careers. Watching them grow and prosper has been a true honour.

The Flash Forward Emerging Photographer Project Grant is for all those artists who need the monetary funds to continue their projects, longer term, or to help them finish what they have been working on. This extended prizing is fully in line with Flash Forward’s original mandate to be a program that invests in artists, though recognition, publication, exhibitions, social media and acknowledgement in every possible way.

Follow this link to submit http://www.magentafoundation.org/flash-forward/. Everyone must fall under the criteria of Flash Forward. There will now be three prizes, plus a high-end publication, touring exhibitions, a festival in Boston and all the accolades that come from our program now and in the future.

We wish everyone the best of luck. Thank you for always inspiring us to work harder to bring your talent and work to a larger global audience.

Sincerely,
MaryAnn Camilleri
