EcoPix Grants for Conservation Photography
EcoPix grants help meet the non-equipment costs of small photographic projects which further nature conservation in Australia and its near neighbours, for example Indonesia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea and Melanesia. The grants aim to develop the skills of young emerging conservation photographers in the region. However, there are no criteria for an applicant’s age or nationality. Grants are for up to $2,000, and are payable to community groups on behalf of individual photographers. This is to promote accountability and encourage conservation photographers to work with community groups, to direct their efforts effectively and gain assignment experience.
