Deadline November 1st: SPE Student Scholarship Opportunities

Society for Photographic Education
2014 Student Scholarship Opportunities
Deadline: Friday, November 1, 2013, 11:59 pm EDT
Fees: $10

“The Society for Photographic Education is a nonprofit membership organization that provides a forum for the discussion of photography-related media as a means of creative expression and cultural insight. Through its interdisciplinary programs, services and publications, the society seeks to promote a broader understanding of the medium in all its forms, and to foster the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship and criticism.

SPE student members can apply for scholarships to offset the cost of attending SPE’s 2014 national conference in Baltimore March 6-9, 2014. All awards include a 2014 national conference fee waiver and a one-year membership to SPE.

SPE Awards
Ten SPE Awards are offered and feature a $500 travel stipend to attend the national conference.

The SPE Award for Innovations in Imaging
The SPE Award for Innovations in Imaging is open to all eligible students working primarily with digital technology and is designated for work only possible because of emerging digital technologies-no alternative processes or gelatin silver prints. A project description describing how the work is possible as a result of emerging digital technologies is required as part of the submission process. Jurors will seek to award work that demonstrates the most innovative, unique, and freshest uses of digital technologies.

Applicants must be currently matriculated students enrolled at a post-secondary institution as an undergraduate or graduate student majoring/concentrating in photography not graduating before the end of the academic year 2013-2014.

Applicants must be student members of SPE or become members before submitting their scholarship application. Visit www.spenational.org for information.

Applicants are not eligible to receive the same award for two consecutive years, and cannot receive two awards in one year.

This year’s jurors are SPE national board members serving on the Awards and Recognition Committee: Erika Gentry (chair), Claude Baillargeon, Amy Holmes George, and Lupita Murillo Tinnen.

Submission Guidelines
Submit online via spenational.slideroom.com. There will be a $10 fee for submitting a portfolio. If you need technical support, contact support@slideroom.com.
