“TheDocumentaryProjectFund was founded to help make sure that photographers who want to tell the stories of their communities will be able to do so. We are here to encourage, through project support, photographers who have a community focus and a good story to tell. We believe that still photography, especially the documentary form, can be an incredibly powerful art. We can admire the beauty of each image, be challenged to think about the issues raised and come away with our biases tested.
TheDocumentaryProjectFund call-for-entry is open to emerging and established still photographers. All applicants must have the appropriate skill level necessary to plan and execute a documentary project. Selected artists will have six months to complete the photographic work.
Each call-for-entry is intended to fund one project and will award up to $5000. That project should be a future project and not one in progress. The fund may grant project support to photographers working in conjunction with another nonprofit, provided that group will match our funding.
Submission deadlines are December 15 and June 15. Each application must include:
Submit applications in PDF or Microsoft Word format. Your name(s), mailing address, email, phone number(s) and a web site (optional) should appear at the top of each page. All entries will be submitted electronically via email, in English, as an attachment to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Project Statement: 1 page maximum
- Budget: 1 page maximum
- Personal Statement: 1 page maximum
- Images: 10-15 total
There are two acceptable ways to submit your photographic work:
- Use an online email service such as YouSendIt or DropSend. This will allow you to email large, zipped files. The images should be:
- JPEG format and sized to 1024 pixels in width for horizontals, 768 pixels in height for verticals.
- Titled as such: Lastname_firstname_projecctimagenumber (ex: smith_john_barbershop1)
- Use your own professional website or a cloud service such as MediaFire, Windows Live, SkyDrive or Box. Do not send us a link to your Facebook page, your Flickr, Shutterfly or other similar accounts. Be sure we are linked directly to the image gallery you want us to evaluate. Include this link with the written portion of your submission.”
“The 2014 Grant for Outstanding Personal Photography Project is open for submissions for photographers self-publishing on fotovisura.com. New members are welcome to submit.
The Grant aims to support personal photography projects and encourage the production and development of photography outside of the commercial realm. The Grant recognizes photographers as judged by their images, story, dedication and commitment of the photographer to the story or concept. Additionally, we consider the extent that he or she is willing to go to bring about positive change in society.
It is our belief that this profession needs to recognize its emerging leaders—and the FotoVisura Grant stands for recognizing, celebrating and supporting the international community of emerging photographers and its leaders.
The Grant is divided into two categories:

A workshop for serious amateurs and professionals alike, it will be taught by Alex and Rebecca, a creative team who often edit projects and books together.

Work by all kinds of photographers will be considered — from art photographers to documentary photographers, from college students to seasoned professionals — the only stipulation being that none of the images submitted have been dramatically altered digitally.
