10th Anniversary Image Gallery – Successful applicants announced

Date: 11/02/2015

The ten successful applicants for the AHRC's 10th Anniversary Image Gallery call were announced today. Each applicant will receive an award of £4,000 to source, select, caption and present digital images on the AHRC website.

The AHRC's Image Gallery was launched in 2013, and aims to showcase the work and talents of the arts and humanities research community, and to celebrate the role of the image in the arts and humanities. This year's call specifically sought applications that had a link to the AHRC's tenth anniversary, either reflecting on past funding or looking at developments in the arts and humanities over the past ten years. The call attracted over 60 applications.
