The Pool Grant

The Pool Grant
Deadline: April 5

The Pool Grant is an initiative that provides $10,000 and a year of mentorship to an emerging photographer for the fulfilment of a photographic project. At the end of a year, the recipient will showcase the completed work at a solo exhibition during Head On Photo Festival.

Founded in 2009, POOL’sartists created The Pool Grant to support the development of emerging talent in the industry, and have spent the past eight years acting as mentors to each year’s recipient. The Pool Grant is a cornerstone of POOL’s philosophy; our artists believe it is essential to support the creative community by sharing their experience and resources in an impactful and tangible way.

The Pool Grant is open to Australian and New Zealand residents over 18 years of age and with less than three years of commercial experience in photography. Tell us your idea and how you plan to complete the project in a year. Inspire us.
