A memoria descritiva debe ter un título e estar composta por tres puntos: narración pormenorizada do proxecto, o modo como o pretenden executar e os obxectivos a acadar. Ten que estar presentada en portugués e inglés ou galego e inglés, con 2500 a 3000 caracteres.

Será nomeado por ESTAÇÃO IMAGEM un mentor que acompañará, con contacto regular ao longo do ano, o traballo do bolseiro e como comisario decidirá sobre as fotografías que serán mostradas tanto na exposición como no catálogo, debendo esta selección reflectir obrigatoriamente o contido da memoria descriptiva. 

Os premiados autorizan a publicación parcial ou integral de calquera imaxe no contexto da realización, divulgación, exposición e promoción da BOLSA ESTAÇÃO IMAGEM 2020 COIMBRA, non recibindo por eso remuneración algunha.

Durante un periodo de dous anos, o vencedor da Bolsa non poderá utilizar fora do contexto da Estação Imagem, sen autorización expresa por parte de esta, as fotografías feitas para este fin, teñan ou non sido editadas no libro e na exposición.

O pagamento da Bolsa será feito en dúas entregas do 50%. A primeira metade no fin de Maio de 2020 e a segunda a finais de Marzo de 2021. A exposición da Bolsa e a producción do libro quedan suxeitos á aprobación do Premio Estaçao Imagen 2021 Coimbra por parte do patrocinador principal, ata finais de Febreiro de 2021.

Non pode concorrer á Bolsa o vencedor do ano anterior.
