January 2004

The five winners of this, recently announced were Veronica Bailey, Polly Braden, Edgar Martins, Danny Treacy and Naglaa Walker. They were selected from the 664 portfolios of photographs submitted by recent graduates. Each winner receives £2,000 and publication of their work in December 2003 issue of Portfolio: Contemporary Photography in Britain.

Sponsors the Jerwood Foundation see this annual award as a unique way to identify and promote emerging UK photographers whose work demonstrates excellence and originality, and give them a major opportunity in the early stages of their careers. The award-open to artists working with photography within three years of graduation from UK degree courses- is managed by Edinburgh-based Portfolio. Commenting on the selection Portfolio editor Gloria Chalmers said "We viewed over 6,000 individual images to select the five winners....The opportunity for young people to be published in Portfolio alongside established artists offers a unique platform for them to launch their careers".
