Supporting the Firecracker Photographic Grant

In summer 2012 the Firecracker Photographic Grant will be announced, providing funding for a female photographer to assist with a documentary photographic project.

To raise funds for the grant, Firecracker has produced an illustrated 2012 diary, beautifully designed by Dutch duo Kummer & Herrman, showcasing the talents of Firecracker's featured photographers for 2011: Polly Braden, Tessa Bunney, Chloe Dewe Mathews, Sophie Gerrard, Léonie Hampton, Jane Hilton, Liz Hingley, Laura Hynd, Dana Popa, Mona Simon, Anastasia Taylor-Lind and Daria Tuminas. All proceeds from the diary will go towards the grant.
