We believe that photojournalism is a powerful tool for
telling compelling social, political and cultural stories. We also understand
that creating and managing world-class photography assignments requires time,
freedom, support and considerable resources.
That is why we continue to offer the Grants for Editorial
Photography, which in 2013 will provide five total grants of $10,000 each to
photojournalists pursuing projects of personal and journalistic significance.
Since its launch in 2005, the Grants for Editorial
Photography celebrate and support independent photojournalism, evidenced by the
many dynamic and compelling projects completed over the years.
The Grants for Editorial Photography will be awarded through
our annual application proposal process, with applications being accepted
beginning April 1, 2013 and will require a 500 word summary of the project
proposal, a short bio, and 20-25 images. Specific uploading instructions will
be made available when the application portal is opened on April 1.
