Aaron Siskind Foundation Invites Applications for 2015 Individual Photographer's Fellowships
Aaron Siskind Foundation


The Aaron Siskind Foundation is accepting applications for its 2015 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 portfolio of still photography of any subject matter, genre, 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 in the medium. Fellowship funds must be used to further the artist's creative endeavors.

United States citizens and legal permanent residents of the U.S. who are at least 21 years old are eligible to apply.

The foundation will begin accepting applications for the 2015 prize on March 2, 2015.

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