Eight young photographers and film makers aged between 17 and 23 have been  announced as the winners of the Ant Clausen Fire It Up Fund. 

Set up in memory of Liverpool based photographer Ant Clausen, the £20,000 fund  aims to help young people with a talent and passion for photography to get the  right equipment, contacts, training and support to turn their passion into a  paycheck.

The eight winners of awards in the first year of the fund are Georgia Madden, Ella  McConville, James Clements, Soukaina Dahhan, Jamey Cassidy, Ayla Gardiner,  Rowan Mair and Dale Bristo.

‘we  were inundated with applicants for the fund of a very high standard, but the work of  these 8 young people stood out as having incredible potential.   

They all work in different mediums – from stop motion animation to wildlife  photography and portraiture and so we will be working with everyone over the next  12 months to find opportunities and experiences that help them make the leap they  need from young people with a passion to professionals who can make a living  doing what they love.’  

The team behind the fund hope to create a network which will provide opportunities  and support for the award winners to help them increase their experiences and  build their portfolios for future opportunities.  

As well as ACC Liverpool Group and GSG Hospitality – supporting partners of the  fund – a range of experiences have already been identified for award winners in  shadowing photographers or working with local organisations such as Merseyrail.  

More details on each of the award winners will be issued through the Fire it up Fund Instagram accounts over the coming days and then all details will be available here
