Deadline May 9th: Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize

Duke University | Center for Documentary Studies
Call for Submissions: Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize
Deadline: Monday, May 9, 2016
Fee: $65

“First announced in 1990, the Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize was created by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University to encourage collaboration between documentary writers and photographers in the tradition of the acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lange and writer and social scientist Paul Taylor. In 1941 Lange and Taylor published An American Exodus, a book that renders human experience eloquently in text and images and remains a seminal work in documentary studies.

In 2011, in recognition of the changing environment in which documentary artists conduct their work, the Center for Documentary Studies decided to reframe the prize guidelines. The re-launched Lange-Taylor Prize supports artists, working alone or in teams, who are involved in extended, ongoing fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation of their work. The idea of “writing” has been expanded to allow words to be represented by audio and video or used in graphic novel format. As in the past, edited oral histories, creative narratives, and poetry (that is both personal and social) are also encouraged.

The winner receives $10,000, features in Center for Documentary Studies’ print and digital publications, and inclusion in the Archive of Documentary Arts at Rubenstein Library, Duke University.

Eligibility
The Lange-Taylor Prize is open to documentary artists of any age and nationality who are involved in extended, ongoing fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation of their work. Single artists as well as collaborative teams are eligible.

If your project combines audio recordings, text, photographs, and video, for instance, please submit a sample of each and address how these elements “rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation” of your work. How is this interplay advantageous in fulfilling the goals of your documentary project?

Duke University | Center for Documentary Studies
Call for Entries: 2016 Dorothea Lange–Paul Taylor Prize

In 1941 Lange and Taylor published An American Exodus, a book that renders human experience eloquently in text and images and remains a seminal work in documentary studies.

Like Lange and Taylor, and all serious documentarians, the competitive applicants to this prize have a point of view derived from an in-depth understanding of place, history, and the current situation, in concert with a personal relationship to the proposed work. Ultimately, their commitment is to use documentary expression to motivate the thinking and reflection of others.

In 2011, in recognition of the changing environment in which documentary artists conduct their work, the Center for Documentary Studies decided to reframe the prize guidelines.
