Gamleby Photo Grant was created to support photographic artists from all over the world.

Our aim is to support the production of new photographic work by inviting artist to Gamleby for an uninterrupted period of work, assist with technical equipment and facilitate a platform for for exchange of ideas between local artists and the artist in residence.

  • Free accommodation in Gamleby
  • Access to photographic equipment (Cameras, Scanner, Lights)
