Deadline May 31st: W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography

W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund
Call for Entries: W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography
Deadline: Sunday, May 31, 2015
Fee: $50

“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 Smith Grant was established in 1978 following the death of Gene Smith, the legendary American photo essayist. It is today the most prestigious honor in documentary photography. Every year it recognizes a photographer who has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to documenting the human condition in the spirit of Smith’s concerned photography and dedicated compassion.

The W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, INC., a not-for-profit corporation qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, independently administers the grant program that provides photographers with the financial freedom to carry out or complete major photographic essays. For 2013, the amount of the grant will be $30,000. An additional $5,000 in fellowship money will be dispersed, at the discretion of the jury, to one or more finalists deemed worthy of special recognition. Awards will be presented in a ceremony held in New York City in early October 2015.

The Jury
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.
  2. The Project Proposal submitted as a PDF and 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 PP. This proposal should be titled and lead with a one paragraph executive summary of the project. The proposal following should be concise, journalistically realizable, visually translatable, and humanistically driven. The applicant must affirm that the proposed project is ongoing.
  3. IMAGES: Applicants can submit up to 40 images total. These should consist of representative images from the project being proposed to the W. Eugene Smith Fund. The applicant can include in his/her submission, past work that represents the candidate’s vision and his or her ability to execute the project being proposed to the fund. The images must conform to the following specifications: JPEG files with 1500 pixels on the long dimension saved at 72 dpi. Name the files with your first and last name and use an underscore to separate the names. At the end of the file name add a sequence number starting with: 01. Example: John_Smith01.jpg, John_Smith02.jpg, John_Smith03.jpg.”

“A former professor of photography at the University of Texas at Austin, native Australian Kate Breakey now lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. She first received international recognition for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs then adds layers of transparent oil paint and pencil.

Small Deaths, on view at the Michener Art Museum from March 14 – July 12, 2015 in the Fred Beans Gallery, features thirty extraordinary, hand-colored, oversized images of the birds, flowers, and insects that photographer Kate Breakey has memorialized through her work. The brilliance of her palette draws viewers to a close-up and unexpected confrontation with mortality. The images are life-size silver gelatin contact prints toned by hand with a golden wash. Breakey’s work has appeared in over 30 one-woman exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. She received the Photographer of the Year Award in 2004 from the Houston Center for Photography.

American Society of Picture Professionals
Understanding Copyright & Building a Copyright Centered Workflow
Saturday, April 25, 2015, 11:00-1:00

“Should you register your copyrights?  What is a copyright anyway?  Should you really be worried about people stealing your images on the Internet?  How has the legal landscape for photographers changed with the emergence of Internet photo sharing?  How do you protect your images while still “getting your work out there?”

In this information-packed seminar, photographer and copyright lawyer Chris Reed will answer these questions and more, helping you build best practices for copyright registration and management into your existing image processing workflows.  Part legal tutorial, part software tutorial, this seminar will help you understand essential copyright concepts that apply to you and your business, and teach you how to maximize your rights without sacrificing exposure.

Speaker – Christopher S. Reed

Chris is a lawyer and a photographer based in Los Angeles.  On the legal front, Chris specializes in copyright and entertainment law; photographically, he focuses largely on landscape and travel photography.”

Deadline April 12th: “EXPOSURE: The 19th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition”

Photographic Resource Center
Call for Entries: EXPOSURE: The 19th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition
Deadline: Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 11:59 pm EDT
Fee for a series of 10 images: $40 + current PRC membership

The PRC invites entries for EXPOSURE: The 19th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition and seeks a broad range work, including both traditional and non-traditional approaches to photography. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have shown in the PRC Juried Exhibitions—including an array of established photographers and those cited as “ones to watch.”Each year, a respected member of the photographic community—from curators to gallerists to photo editors—is asked to select 10 to 15 artists. The curator then selects between two and five pieces per person, thus offering artists the opportunity to showcase a series at a deeper level and making for an enriching experience for audiences as well.

Juror: Kristen Gresh, Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Assistant Curator of Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

EXPOSURE is a great opportunity to view a slice of the best and brightest as selected by a nationally-renowned juror. In celebration of the PRC’s 30th anniversary in the 2006/2007 academic year and to reflect more accurately the mission and function of our annual photography competition, we changed the name of the PRC Members’ Exhibition to EXPOSURE: The Annual PRC Juried Exhibition. Past exhibiting photographers have included Claire Beckett, Victoria Crayhon, Eliot Dudik, Dave Jordano, Benjamin Lowy, Neeta Madahar, Rania Matar, Irina Rozovsky, Tara Sellios, Steve Smith, Martin Stupich, among many others.For details and images from previous Exposure exhibitions visit: www.bu.edu/prc/exposure/juriedexhibition.htm.
