Deadline December 15th: The Documentary Project Fund

Deadline: Sunday, December 15, 2013

“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:
