‘Photocrati Fund’ Offers $5000 Grant for Photographers
February 10, 2011 /Photography News/ Photocrati Media, a leading provider of website templates for photographers, announces the 2011 Photocrati Fund – a $5,000 fellowship for a pro or emerging pro photographer focused on environmental or humanitarian photography.
Powerful imagery awes, inspires and engages people in the world; it incites dialogue and often encourages action. Great photography brings humanity to statistics, faces to tragedy, connections to cultures far away, and life to dying species. Incredible images tell stories that we need to hear. But those stories are expensive and time-consuming to produce.
The Photocrati Fund bridges the gap for one photographer each year by providing a $5,000 photography grant to focus on a month-long environmental or humanitarian photography project. At the completion of the project, the grant winner’s images will be displayed as a photo essay on Photocrati.com.
The grantee will be announced at the Look3 Festival of the Photograph in June 2011.
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.
Deadline: April 1, 2011
Grant applicants should submit a one-page project statement and bio, along with a link to a coherent, themed, online portfolio of 20-30 images to: fund (at) photocrati (dot) com.
