2 weeks ago I had the good fortune to be in Puerto Rico with 4 talented photographers. We explored the island and learned about photography from each other. For me photography has aways been a way to share experiences with a wider world. That engagement is what gets me going. Its why I wanted to shoot for National Geographic, I wanted to share exploration with the widest audience possible.
But with social media you don't need a publishing powerhouse behind you to reach people. Platforms like Instagram and Twitter and Facebook put us all on the same playing field and open up audiences that did not exist just a few years ago.
Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year
Wildlife Photographer of the Year harnesses the power of photography to promote the discovery, understanding, and responsible enjoyment of the natural world.
Now in its 50th year, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition provides a global showcase of the very best nature photography. The competition is co-owned by two UK institutions that pride themselves on revealing and championing the diversity of life on Earth - the Natural History Museum and BBC Worldwide.
The aim of Journalismfund.eu, the European Fund for Investigative Journalism, is to promote quality journalism in Europe by giving journalists the chance to carry out journalistic research projects.
The project should be one that, in principle, could not be realised in this format within the remit of regular journalism – a project that can include cross-border research, networking between colleagues, established and innovative investigative methods and that is at the same time original, innovative and intensive.
Journalismfund.eu will support journalists, who have good ideas for cross-border research and for research on European affairs. Support for travels, translations and simply time for research can be granted. For more information please visit: http://www.journalismfund.eu
Below are a list of grants, fellowships, and contests that photographers may be interested in. I’ve posted all of the available information. When deadlines draw near I will again post a reminder. Please share.
