We are happy to announce the launch of this year’s Timothy Allen Photography Scholarship Award (TAPSA) for all photographers who are interested in travel and documentary photography.
The award will be offered to a total of 5 photographers. This year, one of our recipients will be the person who wins the ‘TAPSA Travel Documentaries’ category in Travel Photographer of the Year. The other 4 will be drawn from the pool of photographers who have entered a selection of photographs that represent the best of their work shot within the last 3 years. This portfolio of up to 10 images can comprise one or more stories of at least 5 images, a selection of single images or both single images and a story together.
Entries will be judged solely by myself. I will be looking for those photographers showing the most ingenuity and originality as well as photographic excellence in both image making and story telling.
The five winners will receive a ten day travel package to Sharjah, UAE including a five day location Workshop lead by myself (Dates will be finalised later in the year due to COVID-19). Winners will also receive entry to Xposure International Photography Festival and all auditorium and seminar sessions during the festival days. Winners will also join me for all private functions and events during the festival, present their work live on stage in Xposure’s main auditorium and have their work included in the TAPSA Exhibition at Xposure. Winners will also receive a private portfolio review with one of the world’s leading photography experts.
Accommodation will be provided at a luxury hotel in Sharjah including all meals during your stay.
