We’d like to give a big shout out to Firecracker, an online platform dedicated to helping support European female photographers. Since the site’s launch in January 2011, Firecracker has featured the work of one photographer per month, bringing attention to the amazing photographs of emerging artists such as Liz Hingley and Chloe Dewe Mathews.
To celebrate Firecracker’s first birthday, the organization published the 2012 Firecracker diary. Designed by Dutch duo, Kummer & Herrman, this weekly diary showcases the work of the 2011 featured photographers. Funds from purchases of the diary will go toward the new Firecracker Photographic Grant.
The grant, which will be fully announced and open for entries in the summer of 2012, will be awarded to a female photographer born or residing in Europe and will fund completion of a documentary project.
To learn more about the grant and about Firecracker, visit their site and definitely take a moment to check out their 2012 weekly diary.
