Open Society Institute Seeks Proposals for Documentary Photography
Distribution Grant

The Open Society Institute Documentary Photography Project is offering a
grant to documentary photographers who have already completed a significant
body of work on issues of social justice to collaborate with a partner
organization and propose new ways of using photography as a tool for
positive social change.

All photographers must have another entity (such as a nonprofit, NGO, or
community-based organization) that will work with the photographer to design
an innovative distribution strategy that targets specific communities and
advocates for social change.

To be eligible for support, proposals must: present strong images that are
contextualized, when necessary, with text, sound, or other media; address a
current social justice issue (preference will be given to work that
coincides with the issues and geographical areas that concern OSI); and
engage a specific audience, community, and/or site and use creative
distribution strategies that are tailored specifically for that context.
Applicants must partner with an organization that will provide
administrative, programmatic, and financial and/or in-kind support.
Grants of $5,000 to $30,000 each will be awarded.

Arts Writers Grant Program
Announces New Application Process for Book

The Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant is a three-year
pilot program designed to support writers whose work addresses contemporary
visual art through project-based grants issued directly to individual
The grant program is spearheaded by the Andy Warhol Foundation for
the Visual Arts as part of its broader Arts Writing Initiative and is
administered by Creative Capital.

Beginning with the program's 2008 grant cycle, applicants for book projects
will no longer be required to submit a letter of strong interest/intent to
publish from an editor as part of their proposal. In place of this
requirement, the program is implementing a new Letter of Inquiry phase for
all book proposals, which will serve as a gateway to the formal
grant-application process. The addition of the LOI phase and the elimination
of the letter of strong interest/intent to publish will enable the Arts
Writers Grant Program to process a higher volume of book proposals and to
consider book projects at an earlier stage of their development.

LOIs will only be accepted from writers who meet the program's general
eligibility requirements and who have been writing professionally on the
contemporary visual arts on a regular basis for at least three years; or
have previously published a book with a reputable publisher; or have
completed a Ph.D. dissertation.

There is no LOI phase for writers seeking support in other categories
(articles, short-form writing, and blogs/new and alternative media). Those
writers may apply directly to the program during the general application
phase. (For these projects, the online grant application form opens on
August 4, 2008. Grant applications are due September 22, 2008.)

Open Society Institute Invites Proposals for Moving Walls Documentary
Photography Exhibition

The Open Society Institute invites photographers and artists to submit a
proposal and completed body of work for consideration in the Moving Walls 16
group exhibition.

The exhibition series is intended to present an artistic interpretation of
the obstacles ‹ such as political oppression, economic instability, and
racism ‹ that society often erects, and the struggles to tear those barriers
down. Since its inception in 1998, Moving Walls has featured nearly 100
photographers whose work addresses a variety of social justice and human
rights issues that coincide with OSI's mission.
The Open Society Institute encourages photographers to submit documentary
work of national or international subjects that coincide with the issues and
geographical areas that are principally of concern to OSI.

Upon selection, photographers must submit a budget proposal for printing,
drymounting, and other production costs. Once the budget is approved,
participants will be responsible for working within this budget and must use
OSI-approved labs. OSI will then pay for standard framing and window
matting. In addition, selected photographers will receive a $1,500 royalty
payment. When the show comes down, OSI will cover the costs of returning
work up to $750 for photographers based in the United States and $1,250

Matera Photo Contest

If you have pictures of Matera (south Italian town) you might want to participate.


€10K to the winner and €1K to each category winner. Sounds interesting? Well, read the rules before applying.

“…you grant the authorization to use the submitted pictures for any use without any compensation.”

I asked for information about this and they replied (this is not my translation, hope you get it):

The applicant will be using the shots to promote the Basilica region at various trade fairs/ on the web/ in print etc. and we would very much like to publish a book with the best shots. Seeing as though the book will not be free as we need to cover costs for print (to limit these we have Antezza tipografi as our only major private sponsor), but without asking a cover charge for the same would not be able to print the same. The competition is not in any way used by us to earn money or speculate on the shots, rather have free rights to diffuse and distribute the same for promotional purposes of the Basilica region.

Credits will always be used, whether on web, print or for apt promotional reasons.
