John & Margaret Baker Memorial Fellowship

Since early 2000, the Baker Family has sponsored the John and Margaret Baker Memorial Fellowship.

John and Margaret Baker along with four friends were tragically killed in a plane crash in 1998. Margaret was a talented and imaginative photographer.

The fellowship provides encouragement and financial assistance to an emerging photographer chosen from the finalists in the biennial National Photography Prize.

The $5000 award is not acquisitive, although one or more of the successful artist’s works may be purchased separately. The fellowship is open to all Australian citizens and residents. 

Previous winners include Glenn Sloggett, Maylei Hunt, Melissa McVeigh, Emily Portman, Nat Ord, and Ioulia Terizis.
