On September 1, the Emerging Asian Photography Grant will be awarded for the first time. With this grant, the Emaho Foundation aims to support Asian photographers. The winner receives prize money amounting to $ 5.000, and, in addition, will have the opportunity to realize a photo project using a Leica M from the LFI loan pool. Afterwards the pictures may be published in LFI or in the blog. The work will also be exhibited at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham, UK.
Photographers still have up until July 31 to submit their works. Then the jury – made up of Christian Caujolle (Founder of Agence Vu’), Kira Pollack (Director of Photography, Time Magazine), Manik Katyal (Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Emaho Magazine), Naoko Ohta (President and CEO of Klee) and Newsha Tavakolian (photographer) – will decide on the winner.
