Research and publications

As a national specialist museum, the Finnish museum of photography conducts research on photography. The goal is to create source materials on Finnish photography for various uses. Extensive text and image databases have been created, e.g. of photographers biographies and of the main parts of the museum's collections.

 

The Börje and Dagmar Söderholm Fund for research on photography

The Finnish Museum of Photography annually awards scholarships for research on the history and theory of photography. The scholarships are based on a The Börje and Dagmar Söderholm Fund, founded by the photographer Börje Söderholm (1922–1998) and his wife, Dagmar. Börje Söderholm worked with portraiture, commercial and press photography. The Finnish Museum of Photography has a large amount of his material in its collections.

 The annual application time is in February, and it is announced in the Museum’s website. The results are announced in April. The total sum of money varies from year to year, and it is usually divided between 2-4 researchers. In 2012 it was 8.500 euros, which was divided between three projects.

The application can be written freely, and it should include the following informations: 

-the amount of money needed,
-the purpose of the grant (i.e. what the applicant intends to do with the grant),
-a timetable plan,
-what other funding the project eventually has.

The application should also include a research plan and an estimation of the significance of the project.
