The 5th edition of the PHmuseum Women Photographers Grant is now open for submissions. From today applicants can present their photography projects to the open call that offers $12,000 in cash prizes meant to support and finance female and non-binary photographers and pursue the original mission to work for gender equality in the photography industry.

All the shortlisted works (up to 40) will be projected at the coming edition of the Photo Vogue Festival in Milan, while the Vogue Italia photography department, lead by Alessia Glaviano, will further select three works among all of the submissions that will be granted online featured interviews on the magazine. The call also offers exhibition and educational opportunities thanks to the work of the PHmuseum team that will handpick a project for a solo exhibition at PHmuseum Lab in 2022 and six photographers who will each access a free online portfolio review from PHmuseum's education program.

To participate, photographers are invited to submit one or more projects centred around a specific theme, narrative or concept. All approaches are welcome from classic to more experimental projects. By applying photographers retain full copyright or their images at all times. The judging is delegated to an independent jury comprising Mirjam Kooiman (Curator at Foam Photography Museum), Poulomi Basu (Multimedia Artist), Damarice Amao (Curator at Centre Pompidou ) and Dilys Ng (Senior Photo Editor at TIME). The review will happen between October and November with the shortlist to be announced just before Photo Vogue Festival.
