Photocrati has launched The 2010 Photocrati Fund competition, a new program of $5000 grants for non-professional photographers working on important humanitarian and environmental projects. The grant is intended to identify great up-and-coming photography talent and give them a high profile platform for carrying out a worthwhile project. A distinguished board and panel of judges include some of the most celebrated environmental and cultural photographers in the world: Steve McCurry, Michael “Nick” Nichols, and Art Wolfe.
Deadline for application submissions is March 15, 2010 (by 11pm GMT).
What is the Photocrati Fund?
The Photocrati Fund offers $5000 grants to non-professional photographers to undertake important humanitarian and environmental photography projects. Our goal is to identify outstanding, up-and-coming photographers and give them the resources necessary to pursue projects that will have a tangible and positive effect on the world.
We will offer one grant in 2010. The application deadline is March 15, 2010, and the award will be announced in June 2010. Awardees become Photocrati Fellows for the calendar year from the announcement of their award until the announcement of the following year’s award.
