On location during TAPSA2016

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 who have entered a portfolio of images that represent the best of their work shot within the last 3 years.  This portfolio can comprise one or more stories or just a selection of single images.   Entries will be judged individually and as a portfolio.  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, commencing on Friday 16th November 2017. Winners will also receive entry to Xposure Festival and all auditorium and seminar sessions during the 2017 festival days 22 – 25 November 2017.  Accommodation will be provided at a luxury hotel in Sharjah including all meals during my workshop.
