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.
