Leica and 1854 team up to introduce £5000 grants for its new Commission Series

Back in January, Leica reminded us of the importance of photography. Now it’s acting on its message by giving photographers the opportunity to tell a story through imagery with the help of a £5000 grant. In partnership with 1854, publisher of The British Journal of Photography, Leica is awarding one new grant, each month, through a Commission Series running from March through May. The theme for the first of three installments of the Commission Series is Witnesses of: The Everyday. Photographers are required to submit 10 existing photographs from their archives accompanied by a 100-word proposal. In order to qualify, entrants also need to apply for membership to 1854. Besides a £5000 grant and camera gear, each winner will also get access to Leica Lab's online courses to further develop their skills. The deadline to apply for this month's Witnesses of: The Everyday Commission Series is Thursday, April 1st. A panel of judges representing 1854 and Leica will review submissions. The winner will be expected to complete their series between April 26th and May 17th.
