The Rebecca Vassie Memorial Award for emerging photographers is a cash prize of £2000. The award was created in memory of Rebecca Vassie, a British photographer and photojournalist who died suddenly, aged 30, while on assignment in Uganda in March 2015. Applicants for the award, who must either be from or based in the UK, are asked to submit a proposal setting out a compelling vision for a narrative photography project with a social or political context.
