Aaron Siskind Foundation Invites Applications for 2016 Individual Photographer's Fellowships
Aaron Siskind Foundation

The Aaron Siskind Foundation is accepting applications for its 2016 Individual Photographer's Fellowships program. The annual program encourages and celebrates artistic achievement in contemporary photography by supporting the creative endeavors of artists working in photography and photo-based art media.

A limited number of fellowship grants of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to artists working in photography and photo-based art. Qualified applicants must provide a still photography portfolio that illustrates any subject, genre, and/or process. Works submitted may be traditional photography projects or experimental works, but photographic techniques must be pivotal to the works submitted. Examples of ineligible work include film, video, and interactive multimedia.

Recipients will be determined by a panel of distinguished guest judges on the basis of artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement. Fellowship funds must be used to further the artist's creative endeavors.

Only citizens and legal permanent residents of United States who are 21 or older are eligible to apply.

The application period for the 2016 prize opens on March 2 and ends May 30.

For complete program guideline and application instructions, see the Aaron Siskind Foundation Website.
