“The Woodstock Artist-in-Residency Program is designed to support artists of color working in the photographic arts who reside in the United States that would benefit with access to time, facilities, financial, critical, and technical support. This activity is created with an emphasis on supporting artists working in the photographic arts who are at the brink of their careers and promising talent. All of us lead very busy lives – the drive for this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.
Each year CPW offers 7 residencies for artists of color and 1 “critical studies residency” for a curator/critic of color. A-I-R’s receive:
- accommodations at a historic artist residence located .5 miles from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district.
- 24/7 access to CPW’s workspace facilities (including black-&-white darkroom, digital imaging stations, and library)
- critical and technical support
- stipend for food and travel, and honorarium
- exhibition and related opportunities”

A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio
February 8 – October 5, 2014
“Bringing together photographs, films, videos, and works in other mediums, A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio examines the ways in which photographers and artists using photography have worked and experimented within the four walls of the studio space, from photography’s inception to today. Featuring both new acquisitions and works from the Museum’s collection that have not been on view in recent years, A World of Its Own includes approximately 180 works, by approximately 90 artists such as Berenice Abbott, Uta Barth, Zeke Berman, Karl Blossfeldt, Constantin Brancusi, Geta Brătescu, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank, Jan Groover, Barbara Kasten, Man Ray, Bruce Nauman, Paul Outerbridge, Irving Penn, Adrian Piper, Edward Steichen, William Wegman, and Edward Weston.
The exhibition considers the various roles played by the photographer’s studio as an autonomous space; depending on the time period, context, and the individual motivations (commercial, artistic, scientific) and sensibilities of the photographer, the studio may be a stage, a laboratory, or a playground.” more»

Lecture by Bill Hunt, The Ten Most Exciting Photographers I Learned about this Year
Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public, seating is first come, first served;
“A self-described champion of photography, W.M. “Bill” Hunt will engage the INFOCUS audience with his list of the 10 most exciting photographers he learned about this year. Hunt is passionate and unpredictable. He likes to emphasize the “de-light” in photography. For 40 years, Hunt has been a collector, dealer (Hasted Hunt, Ricco/Maresca), curator, writer, teacher (SVA, Aperture and ICP), and story-teller. His book The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious was published in 2011 by Aperture in the US, Thames & Hudson in the UK, and as L’Oeil Invisible by Actes Sud in France and selected by most of the Top Ten lists. He is working on a number of new projects while he continues to write and lecture, review portfolios, judge competitions, and serve on the boards of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and The Center for Photography at Woodstock. And, he is a pretty funny guy (self-described).”

“Last April’s New York Portfolio Review was so successful that we decided to make it a regular event. So we are pleased to announce that applications are open for the second annual New York Portfolio Review, sponsored by the Lens Blog and the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. This year’s review will be held the weekend of April 5 and 6, 2014 in New York, and it will be an opportunity for people in the photographic community to meet, trade ideas and help each other.
Space is limited, but defying the laws of supply and demand, the review is still free. Call us outlaws or crazy, but that’s how we roll. Why? Because we think it is hard enough to be a photographer these days — that every break counts.
Saturday, April 5 will be for all photographers 21 and older, each of whom will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 6 will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of four private critiques for each participant, as well as workshops on photo editing, portfolio building and copyright and contracts.
We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 50 for Sunday. All kinds of photographic work — from fine art to photojournalism — are encouraged. Please note: photographers who attended last year’s review will not be eligible to attend this year.
- Submit no more than 20 photos total, from one or two projects.
- Files should be jpegs, 1200 pixels across and 72 d.p.i.
- Submit files via the form here.
We will look at every submission, pick 150 photographers and notify you by March 6. Once you have been accepted, you will choose from a list of reviewers you would like to meet, and we will do our algorithmic best to make everyone happy. Honest.”

“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: email@example.com.
- 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:
