EMAHO Emerging Asian Photography Grant

by Pratika Yashaswi

Since its establishment in 2011, Emaho Foundation, along with its photojournalism magazine curated by Manik Katyal, has been excelling in its efforts to create a global artistic community rooted in Asia.

In September, Emaho will be awarding US$5000 (and a chance to be showcased at the Mezzanine Gallery in Nottingham) to an outstanding photographer from Asia through the first ever Emerging Asian Photography Grant, supported by the New Art Exchange.

It is open to any Asian photographer who is able to present a body of work that impresses the eminent jury, and who intends to use the grant for furthering an ongoing photography project. The submission should demonstrate true dedication to the subject of the photographer’s choice. Complete details can be found in the Emaho Foundation website.

Along with Manik Katyal, members of the judging panel include some formidable forces in the field from around the world such as French educator, writer, and curator Christian Caujolle. He is the founder of the first-ever “Photographers Agency” Agence VU, and has been closely associated with the likes of Roland Barthes, Michael Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu.

Also on the panel are Kira Pollack, who as Director of Photography shaped Time Magazine’s stellar reputation in photography; and international photojournalist Newsha Tavakolian, co-founder of Rawiya, the only all-women’s collective of documentary photographers in the Middle East. Representing the orient on the jury is Naoko Ohta, President and CEO of art-services company Klee, Inc.
