The Open Society Institute’s Documentary Photography Project

2008 Distribution Grant
Deadline: Friday, June 20, 2008, 5pm (Eastern Standard Time)
OSI’s 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 engages a specific audience, community, and/or site and presents documentary photographs in a way that has a meaningful and lasting impact on the communities or issues addressed in the images. Grants of $5,000 to $30,000 will be awarded.
