The Photocrati Fund offers $5000 grants to photographers to undertake important humanitarian and environmental photography projects. The goal is to identify outstanding photographers and to provide the resources necessary to pursue projects that will have a tangible and positive effect on the world.
The 2012 Photocrati Fund competition is open from January 2012 through 1 April 2012. The 2012 Photocrati Fund award will be announced at the Look3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia in June 2012.
The grant winner will become a Photocrati Fellow for the calendar year from the announcement of his/her award until the announcement of the following year’s award.
$5000 Photography Grant for Professional and Emerging Photographers Worldwide!
This grant is intended for both pro and emerging photographers.
The grant is open to photographers over 21 years of age from any country worldwide, but applicants should have a proven ability to produce outstanding imagery and coherent photo essays, as well as the background necessary to carry out the proposed project. This means that for photographers planning to complete a project in a country other than their own country of origin, there should be a clear demonstration of preparation for work in that country (i.e. proper visas, contacts, language training, etc.).
Each submission may contain only one project proposal and each applicant may apply only once per submission cycle.
All applications must be submitted in English, online to the following email address: fund [at] photocrati.com (please replace [at] with @).
The application consists of just two items: a one-page project statement and bio, and a link to your online portfolio submitted via email.
