Your chance at a start in humanitarian photography

Your chance at a start in humanitarian photography

Here is your chance to get your feet wet in the muddy but exciting waters of humanitarian photography.  A very cool photographic website called Photocrati (you will want to bookmark this site!) has created a funding organization called The Photocrati Fund and has announced a $5,000 grant to non-professional photographers that want to break into the world of humanitarian photography. This gives you a leg up on a project or idea your might be working on. 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. Their board and panel of judges is pretty impressive and includes some of the most celebrated environmental and cultural photographers in the world: Steve McCurry, Michael “Nick” Nichols, and Art Wolfe. All they are missing is me!

But seriously folk…

Applicants must be non-professional photographers who derive less than 50% of their income from photography or photography-related activities. 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, as well as the background necessary to carry out their proposed project.

OK so what are you waiting for?!
