“We are thrilled to announce that we will be celebrating our 5th year in our home on the Brooklyn Waterfront and we will be centrally located in the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza directly under the iconic bridge in DUMBO! There will be containers! exhibitions! talks & workshops! Our Smorgasburg Beer Garden with night time events, and this year we will be more immersed throughout the park than ever before – giving our photographers and partners even more exposure to the masses!
We are working with some of our great partners from years past as well as some “new blood” – but we’re always looking for new programming partners to join our PHOTOVILLE family, so we’ve reserved a few containers just for that!
From now till May 20, we will be accepting proposals and if a project seems like it would be a good fit within the land of PHOTOVILLE, we will reach out to discuss how to make it all work financially (rental & production expenses), logistically, and most importantly, creatively!”

“Our photographic world is so dynamic and is changing almost by the minute. In a world where everyone’s a photographer and photography is so ubiquitous, the potential for utilizing photography in innovative ways is daunting, exciting and unlimited.
At PhotoWings, we work hard to explore creative and thoughtful ways to utilize photography across disciplines, cultures and generations to further deep thinking and communication. Photographs can help build 21st century skills and encourage social emotional learning (SEL).
We’ve had extraordinary success finding like-minded partners to help further our mission and would now like to engage the Ashoka, SPE, and other educator communities for your ideas. We are purposely making our Flash Grants “up to” $1000 and “up to” $5000 each based on the (depth-reach-complexity-budget) of the applications we receive. We’d like to receive your input on any scale—from a one-off idea to a full-blown project. PhotoWings has supported the creation of toolkits or curricula related to important photography projects that have demonstrated the potential to impact many people and create ripples. The idea is to not only make an impact, but to create something that can be replicated, adapted or serve as inspiration for a new project.
Up to $1000 for an idea or curriculum that utilizes content from the PhotoWings website.
Up to $5000 to fund a photography project that is cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural and/or intergenerational.”

“First announced in 1990, the Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize was created by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University to encourage collaboration between documentary writers and photographers in the tradition of the acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor. In 1941 Lange and Taylor published An American Exodus, a book that renders human experience eloquently in text and images and remains a seminal work in documentary studies.
In 2011, in recognition of the changing environment in which documentary artists conduct their work, the Center for Documentary Studies decided to reframe the prize guidelines. The re-launched Lange-Taylor Prize supports artists, working alone or in teams, who are involved in extended, ongoing fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation of their work. The idea of “writing” has been expanded to allow words to be represented by audio and video or used in graphic novel format. As in the past, edited oral histories, creative narratives, and poetry (that is both personal and social) are also encouraged.
The winner receives $10,000, features in Center for Documentary Studies’ print and digital publications, and inclusion in the Archive of Documentary Arts at Rubenstein Library, Duke University.
The Lange-Taylor Prize is open to documentary artists of any age and nationality who are involved in extended, ongoing fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation of their work. Single artists as well as collaborative teams are eligible.
Applicants upload portfolio and submit payment online to http://dukearts.slideroom.com:
Applicants may submit a portfolio of any combination of the below, for a maximum of 20 uploads:
- Up to 19 images (photographs/graphics + text) in digital format from an ongoing project (jpg/pdf). Please label images with captions, to include title, year, format. and/or
- Up to 15-pages of double-spaced writing (edited oral history, descriptive narrative, poetry) from an ongoing project in pdf format. Please include name, address, telephone number, and email address on the first page.
Note: In the case of a combined pdf of writing and photographs, the document should include no more than 19 images and no more than the equivalent of 15 pages of double-spaced writing. and/or
Up to 10 minutes total of time-based media (whether audio, narrated slide show, video) (mp3/mp4/mov) from an ongoing project. Please label uploads with title, year, format. SlideRoom can also accept links to YouTube/Vimeo.
1-page project description (pdf).

1-page statement (pdf) that addresses the use and relationship of words and images in your work. If your project combines audio recordings, text, photographs, and video, for instance, please submit a sample of each and address how these elements “rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation” of your work. How is this interplay advantageous in fulfilling the goals of your documentary project?
1-page biography or C.V. for each project partner (pdf).”
