Deadline May 23rd: Call for Proposals: Documentary Photography Audience Engagement Grant

Open Society Foundations
Call for Proposals: Documentary Photography Audience Engagement Grant
A Grant to Encourage New Ways of Presenting Documentary Photography to the Public

Deadline: May 23, 2011, 5:00 pm (EST)

“The Audience Engagement Grant (formerly called the Distribution Grant) supports photographers to take an existing body of work on a social justice or human rights issue and devise an innovative way of using that work as a catalyst for social change. We are interested in well-designed projects that inspire audiences visually and create meaningful interactions with photographic content.

Projects should combine existing bodies of work with programming or tools that give viewers a deeper, more nuanced understanding of issues and empower them to participate in the process of improving their own or others’ realities. Projects should also include a partnership between a photographer and an organization that combines expertise in documentary photography with experience working on the topic or community the project addresses.”

Five to eight grants of $5,000 to $30,000 will be awarded.
