Women Photograph Invites Applications for Project Grants

Daniella Zalcman
Founder & Executive Director, Women Photograph

Women Photograph, a non-profit launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women and nonbinary visual journalists, is inviting applications from women, nonbinary, and intersex documentary photographers of any nationality from around the world to apply for its 2022 project grants.

The grants are used to support photography projects either new or in-progress from visual journalists working in a documentary capacity. Seven grants are available, at least one of which will be earmarked for a nonbinary or transgender photographer.

Central to Women Photograph’s mission is to be inclusive of and support work from photographers who represent a diverse range of identities, geographies, and experiences but an applicant needs not be a member of Women Photograph to apply.

Four grants are funded by Getty Images’ Inclusion Grants programme and will be awarded with a specific concentration in subject matter or medium: one for a project with a news focus, one for a sports project, one for an arts & entertainment project, and one for a video or multimedia project. Three additional grants, supported by Nikon USA, are open to work from any genre – photographers will be asked to self-identify the subject matter or medium of their submission in the application.

Funding may be used to cover the hard costs of reporting, photographers’ creative fees, and any other expenses that support the production of new work. This grant is not meant to support the production of books, exhibitions, workshops, or other secondary materials.

Applicants are encouraged to submit one story, rather than singles, as part of the grant application. The images need not be related to the project proposal (but applicants are expected to specify in their application if the images are unrelated to their proposal).

 The deadline for the call is the deadline is May 15, 2022.
