Deadline June 1st: PhotoWings Flash Grants 2016

PhotoWings
Call for Submissions: Flash Grants 2016
Deadline: Wednesday, June 1, 2016

“Our photographic world is so dynamic and is changing almost by the minute. In a world where everyone’s a photographer and photography is so ubiquitous, the potential for utilizing photography in innovative ways is daunting, exciting and unlimited.

At PhotoWings, we work hard to explore creative and thoughtful ways to utilize photography across disciplines, cultures and generations to further deep thinking and communication.  Photographs can help build 21st century skills and encourage social emotional learning (SEL).

We’ve had extraordinary success finding like-minded partners to help further our mission and would now like to engage the AshokaSPE, and other educator communities for your ideas. We are purposely making our Flash Grants “up to” $1000 and “up to” $5000 each based on the (depth-reach-complexity-budget) of the applications we receive. We’d like to receive your input on any scale—from a one-off idea to a full-blown project. PhotoWings has supported the creation of toolkits or curricula related to important photography projects that have demonstrated the potential to impact many people and create ripples. The idea is to not only make an impact, but to create something that can be replicated, adapted or serve as inspiration for a new project.

Category One
Up to $1000 for an idea or curriculum that utilizes content from the PhotoWings website.

Category Two
Up to $5000 to fund a photography project that is cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural and/or intergenerational.”

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.

Submission Guidelines
You must register on this website by clicking the ‘Apply for Grant’ link on the side navigation. There is a $50 fee for grant consideration. No preliminary materials will be returned. Applicants should submit:

  1. A Bio and/or CV submitted as a PDF not to exceed 2 pages. Name the file with your first and last name and use an underscore to separate the names. At the end of the filename add CV.
