ABOUT THE STORYTELLER IN RESIDENCE ROLE
An annual £45,000 fund to help one photojournalist tell ocean conservation stories that need to be told.
Are you an ocean photographer or filmmaker with a passion for storytelling? Are there untold conservation stories the world needs to hear? Are you the person to tell them?
Yes, yes, and yes? We want to hear from you! We want to empower you to tell the conservation stories close to your heart, to provide you with the means to bring them to life, to share them with the world.
2023’s Storyteller in Residence has already been chosen. You can keep up with what they are up to in the field, here. Could SiR2024 be you? What stories will you tell?
