NPPA Short Grants For Photographers
August 15, 2011 /Photography News/ Budgets for newsrooms are shrinking and one of the greatest victims is the community photo story. Photographers don’t have the time or the funding that they used to have to work on compelling stories in their community.
The National Press Photographers Association is bringing back the community photo story through the NPPA Short Grants, with five awards of $3,000 each. The grant is designed for funding projects small enough in scale that the bulk of the work can be accomplished in two weeks or less.
Applicants must reside in the United States and make their living primarily through still photography. This grant is only available to working professionals.
The primary criteria in judging are 1) your ability to tell a great visual story, and 2) a great idea for a story that you haven’t told yet.
Photographers retain copyright to their photo stories.
Deadline: September 30, 2011
