“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:

  • The FotoVisura Grant for Outstanding Personal Project
  • The Spotlight Grant for Outstanding Student Project
