The W. Eugene Smith Grant is presented annually to a photographer whose past work and proposed project, as judged by a panel of experts, follows the tradition of W. Eugene Smith’s compassionate dedication exhibited during his 45-year career as a photographic essayist.
This year the Smith Grant will be $30,000, with an additional $5,000 in fellowship money also to be given at the discretion of the jury. The aim of the grant program is to provide photographers with the financial freedom to envision and carry out major photographic studies. Applicants must include a written proposal, which should be, concise, journalistically realisable, visually translatable and humanistically driven.
