Nikon, others offer grants for visual photographers

WOMEN PhotographLeica USAMPB and Nikon are inviting emerging visual journalists to apply for documentary grants.

Grants, which vary from US$5,000 to US$10,000, can support either new or in-progress documentary projects.

Applicants are invited to submit a photo story, rather than singles, as part of the application. Multimedia projects are welcome.




    Additional consideration will be given to applicants who are engaged with the communities they cover beyond traditional journalistic documentation.

    The organisers say funding should primarily be used to support the production of new work, including the hard costs of reporting, and photographers’ creative fees, but may also partially fund community engagement programming.

    Women and non-binary documentary photographers of any nationality can apply for grants.

    The deadline for the submission of application is May 15, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
