Deadline: May 31, 2011
Fee: None

Grant: $30,000
Discretionary Fellowship: $5,000

“The W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography is presented annually to a photographer whose past work and proposed project, as judged by a panel of experts, follows the tradition of W. Eugene Smith‘s concerned photography and dedicated compassion exhibited during his 45-year career as a photographic essayist.”

The Fund’s Board of Trustees appoints a three-member international jury every year. The jury meets twice. At its first session it reviews all the applications and proposals, and selects finalists primarily on the basis of the substantive (and intellectual) merit of their project. The finalists are only then asked to submit a comprehensive photographic print portfolio, to write (if necessary) a more detailed and focused proposal, and to answer questions about their project.

At its second session, the jury reviews the new materials and proceeds to select the grant recipient and the beneficiaries of the fellowship money.

Applicants should include:

  • Written proposal that is concise, journalistically realizable, visually translatable, and humanistically driven.
  • Resume of educational and professional qualifications.
  • 20 to 40 images that demonstrate evidence of photographic ability.
  • The applicant must affirm that the proposed project is ongoing.
