Today, photography community EyeEm and photo software company Skylum announce the launch of a global photography scholarship, open to anyone interested in photography. Skylum Software and EyeEm are committed to supporting artists and creativity all around the world. With that Skylum Software is providing $10,000 to 10 innovative artists on the EyeEm platform to help these creatives focus on their art.
The selected artists will also be invited to create their own unique presets which will be part of a special preset collection, launching next month on Skylum’s Luminar Marketplace. This collection will help photographers find inspiration and improve their editing workflow. Revenue from the EyeEm x Skylum preset collection will be shared 1/3 with the artists, allowing them to benefit from a vibrant ecosystem.
Skylum has already launched signature presets with some of the world’s most innovative photographers, such as Trey Ratcliff, but this partnership, spearheaded by 500px founder Evgeny Tchebotarev, now VP of Growth at Skylum, marks the first time for a global cooperation between the two creative brands.
“We always love finding new ways for our photographers to do more with their work,” said Jenna Black, Director of Brand Partnerships at EyeEm. “This scholarship with Skylum is a perfect opportunity for photographers to showcase their creativity to a new audience and benefit financially.”
Skylum CEO Alex Tsepko agrees: “Our focus has always been to provide artists with the best photo enhancement tools, and collaborating with a creative community like EyeEm to empower next generation of creatives is just a natural fit”.
Applications are open to anyone signed up on the EyeEm platform, available for free on iOS, Android and web. Submissions are open from now until December 2. Apply now at https://www.eyeem.com/pages/skylum-photography-scholarship.
