The Aaron Siskind Foundation is accepting applications for its 2018 Individual Photographer's Fellowships program. The annual program encourages and celebrates artistic achievement in contemporary photography by supporting the creative endeavors of artists working in photography and photo-based art media.
A limited number of fellowship grants of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to artists working in photography and photo-based art. Qualified applicants must provide a portfolio of still photography of any subject matter, genre, or process. Works submitted may be a traditional photography project or a more experimental work, but photographic techniques must be pivotal to the work submitted. Examples of ineligible work include film, video, and interactive multimedia.
Recipients will be determined by a panel of distinguished guest judges on the basis of artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium. Fellowship funds must be used to further the artist's creative endeavors.
Citizens and legal permanent residents of the United States who reside in the U.S. and who are 21 years of age are eligible to apply.
The foundation will begin accepting applications for the 2018 prize on March 1. There is a $20 application fee due at the time of submission.
